John McNeil & Ethan Iverson


On tonight’s bill, both the revered Brooklyn trumpeter (McNeil) and the wry Bad Plus pianist (Iverson) love to mess with the norms, but at the end of the day, both their messes remain relatively tidy. Each genuflects to the well-articulated line as much as they do to the experimental aside, so this gig (with bassist Ben Street and drummer Adam Nussbaum) should have a feel both familiar and foreign.
