Event Description

Reinventing the standard jazz trio with a defiantly convention-breaking approach to improvisational music, The Bad Plus has carved out a niche as one of the most unique voices in modern music. The trio, featuring Ethan Iverson piano, Dave King drums, and Reid Anderson bass, first gained notice for their audacious interpretations of rock and pop songs. Tunes that have gotten the Bad Plus treatment include Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man”, Blondie’s “Heart of Glass”, Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, The Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love?”, and even Stravinsky’s “Variation d’Apollon”.

Joshua Redman is one the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the 90s. With a big meaty tone and a soulful style reminiscent of Sonny Rollins, the wildly talented and expressive tenor saxophonist has become a standard-bearer for exciting contemporary jazz, while his accessibility and charisma have made him one of the more popular and recognizable jazz artists. He’s now released fifteen recordings, two of which have been nominated for a Grammy. He looks forward to joining forces with his friends and colleagues The Bad Plus for this performance in Victoria.

Opening Act:
Kneebody was called by The New York Times a “resolutely un-pindownable band.” These genre-morphing jazzheads channel everything from 1960s freebop to 1970s jazz rock, with frequent nods to hip hop, electro-pop, indie rock, and punk along the way. Adam Benjamin piano, Shane Endsly trumpet, Kaveh Rastegar bass, Ben Wendel saxophone, Nate Wood drums.
