Anybody familiar with The Bad Plus? They're a fucking mad piano trio that I saw and heard for the first time at the Newport Jazz Festival on Sunday (8/10), and I became an instant convert. I highly recommend their CD, These Are The Vistas, but you really have to see them live. They do insane versions of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Heart of Glass", and the original stuff is sick as well.

I've heard a lot of good things about them. They are actually opening for this group I'm goin to see called "Garage A Tois" who are also worth checking out.

The Bad Plus are releasing their arrangement of Stravinsky's 'The Rite of Spring' on March 25th.

I previewed it here: http://www.npr.org/2014/03/16/286816490 ... -of-spring

It's pretty much insane.

Oh sure, I have an album by The Bad Plus. Picked it up about a year ago. I enjoy this trio and it is what I would call great weekend music to unwind with. All instrumental. They make fantastic covers of well known songs and their own stuff is quite tasty too.

I love the coda on their cover of Black Sabbath Iron Man. Good album!
