Biography of Bad Plus

Arguably one of the biggest breakout stories of 2003, The Bad Plus—Reid Anderson (bass), Ethan Iverson (piano), and David King (drums)—connected with the jazz world and beyond with These Are The Vistas, the renegade trio's debut on Columbia Records.

With Give, The Bad Plus explores the horizons intimated on These Are The Vistas and delivers the group's most satisfying collection to-date. On Give, the trio teamed up once again with Grammy-winning producer Tchad Blake, whose experimental signature sound has graced projects by Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam, Los Lobos, Tom Waits and Elvis Costello.

Recorded and mixed last October by Tchad Blake at Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England, and co-produced by The Bad Plus and Blake, Give is the groundbreaking trio at its best. A formidable musical experience, Give is a rollicking sonic adventure with new compositions from each of the group's members alongside covers by the Pixies ("Velouria"), Ornette Coleman ("Street Woman"), and Black Sabbath ("Iron Man").

All three members of The Bad Plus hail from the Midwest: Reid and David from Minnesota and Ethan from Wisconsin. The roots of the group date back to circa 1984 when Dave first heard Reid sing in a junior high rock band. By 1989, Reid and Ethan were playing free jazz at restaurants throughout America's dairy land. While 1990 marks Dave, Reid, and Ethan's first musical encounter, the group's eponymous debut album was released in 2001 on Fresh Sound, a Spanish independent label. A 2002 performance at New York's Village Vanguard led to the signing with Columbia Records.
