I was so engrossed in writing up that last post I accidentally got off at 14th St instead of Chambers. I didn't even realize it until after I exited the platform and had to pay again. I just went up to Merkin Hall at lunchtime to get my The Bad Plus + Marco Benevento ticket for 5/14! I am psyched!
I don't think I ever wrote about the time I was at work and was really engrossed and I was listening to the same cd over and over. When I finally noticed the music, I was blown away. I kept wondering what Marco cd I was listening to. It took me a while to realize it was The Bad Plus.
I'm so glad someone thought of this show!
Situated at the nexus of contemporary classical, jazz and rock and roll, The Bad Plus brings its all-out, uninhibited style to pop standards and its own compositions. They'll be joined by the Benevento//Mathis/Barr Trio—a keyboard/drum/drum combo that tests the limits of indie rock. This New Sounds® Live event is hosted by WNYC’s John Schaefer.
