For twelve years now, Reid Anderson, Ethan Iverson, and David King - who between them make up the Bad Plus - have been taking liberties with the conventions of jazz, into which they inject influences from pop and rock. Their uncompromising approach has often been controversial, but their original, distinctive sound has placed them in the vanguard of a new instrumental movement that appeals both to a traditional jazz audience and to the mainstream. The band is known for its covers of, among others, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Ornette Coleman, and David Bowie. At their Brussels concert, the Bad Plus will play numbers from all their albums.
