PRESS REVIEWS
?It?s about as badass as highbrow gets.?
- Rolling Stone

?If the Coen Brothers put together a jazz trio, perhaps it would be like this, the comic and the dramatic rolled together.?
- The Guardian

?Better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-60's jazz and indie rock.....?
- The New York Times

?Audacious, rule-breaking jazz trio crunches and at times pulverizes swing to let improvisational freedom shine...Dynamics play a huge roll in the act's music, as does humor, an element sorely lacking in most of contemporary jazz. But beauty is also key... jazz purists tremble while the vanguard flocks.?
- Billboard


?...high art, not pop gimmickry...The Bad Plus embrace sonic adventure without selfish avant-gardism...seething with funky new-millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights.?
- Entertainment Weekly
