The Bad Plus

I was in JB getting Fathers’ Day presents and picked up the new CD by The Bad Plus. When I got back to work, the most recent tweet in my timeline mentioned that The Bad Plus were playing in Melbourne on Wednesday. So now I’m going to see them in Sydney on Wednesday.

This is a coincidence, but it’s the kind of coincidence that can’t happen without such things as Twitter.

The wonderful video of their version of Babbitt’s “Semi-Simple Variations” has been taken off YouTube, but there is still a heap of good stuff available.

The pianist, Ethan Iverson, has a great blog at Do The Math
