Please join Ars Nova Workshop on Friday, March 1 at Solar Myth for two sets by the always irreverent and defiantly original The Bad Plus, now expanded to a quartet line-up featuring some of progressive jazz’s most revered artists.

The Bad Plus are the ultimate originals – a democratic unit with a clear vision and a refusal to conform to convention. For over two decades they have played with spirit and adventure, made their own rules and done so with a bold sense of creativity and intent. Avoiding easy categorization, The Bad Plus has won critical acclaim and a legion of fans worldwide with their unique sound and flair for live performance. The Bad Plus continues to push boundaries as founding members Reid Anderson (bass) and Dave King (drums) embark on a new piano-less incarnation of the band with Ben Monder (guitar) and Chris Speed (tenor saxophone) – instigating a new wave of excitement and anticipation within the band that is re-energizing their sound and inspiration. The Bad Plus have constantly searched to bridge genres and techniques while exploring the infinite possibilities of exceptional musicians working in perfect sync.
