The Bad Plus
The Bad Plus has spent nearly two decades expanding the parameters of what is expected of a piano-bass-drums trio. The genre-smashing band has crafted a repertoire of innovative original music, along with a daring series of iconoclastic covers spanning such diverse artists as Nirvana and Neil Young, Aphex Twin and Ornette Coleman. No matter the material, The Bad Plus continue to mine the very same aesthetic principles that inspired their inception, exploring myriad musical forms through the unparalleled interpretive power of jazz.
IT’S HARD was produced by The Bad Plus between April 12th-14th, 2016 at Brooklyn Recording in Brooklyn, New York alongside engineer/mixer Pete Rende.
