The Bad Plus at Ronnie Scott’s 2017

Saw these guys at Ronnie Scotts last week, and they were pretty incredible. The Bad Plus are an awesome Jazz group out the US that are doing their own sub genre of Jazz, along with GoGo penguin and a few others, at the moment that I am a big fan of. They still have heavy jazz moments and improvisation but the bass, piano and drums combination makes for an easier intro to the more general listner. One thing that particular stood out for me this concert was the drummer Dave King, he had a couple of songs in there that he composed that were absolutely delicious, rich and full of unexpectedness yet rhythm. The concert started out off quite bland I must say, but by the end they were on to a great finish. I would however say they should have picked a better encore. Below is great cover of a tears for fears track, and for an album recommendation check out their album with Joshua Redman.
