Sask Jazz Festival: The Bad Plus Joshua Redman at Broadway Theatre
June 25, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
Tickets go on sale Tuesday, March 31st at 10am.
The Bad Plus — bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King — have a well-earned reputation for pushing the limits on what is expected of a piano-bass-drums trio. The past 15 years have seen the genre-smashing band create a distinctive and original repertoire of inventive and exciting original music, along with iconoclastic covers of artists as divergent as Nirvana, Neil Young, and Radiohead. Earlier this year, the acclaimed trio took on one of the most influential works of the 20th Century, Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring (Sony Music Masterworks).
Saxophonist, Joshua Redman, is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the ‘90s and has established himself as one of the most consistent and successful bandleaders. He has worked and recorded with many great jazz artists, in various ensemble configurations, for two decades. He looks forward to pushing musical boundaries when he joins forces with his friends and colleagues The Bad Plus in this very special series of concerts.
