      The Bad Plus at Crosstown Theater

      Join us for a performance by jazz trio The Bad Plus on the Kemmons Wilson Family Stage at Crosstown Theater. Tickets: $25Doors at 7:30 pm | Show at 8 pm The Bad Plus came together at the end of the 20th century and has avoided easy categorization ever since, winning critical hosannas and a legion of fans worldwide with their creativity, unique sound, and flair for live performance. The intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques while exploring the infinite possibilities of three exceptional musicians working in perfect sync. The band consists of founding members Reid Anderson (bass) and Dave King (drums) and new member Orrin Evans (piano) — a group of passionate collaborators with no single “leader.” ------- "Bad Plus have grown from upstart into institution. Best Jazz Album of 2018."— Rolling Stone "A combustible trio with a book of finely orchestrated, catchy original tunes, and a knack for radically reconstituted pop covers."— The New York Times "By any standard, jazz or otherwise, it is moving, mighty music…bad to the bone, hot players with hard-rock hearts."— Rolling Stone "The Bad Plus are the Coen brothers of jazz: Midwesterners, both ironic and dead earnest, technically brilliant, beyond versatile, a little chilly sometimes, but funny, surprising, and pretty hard to pin down."— The New Yorker "One of the great, true groups in jazz of the past 25 years."— Joshua Redman
