JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2008 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

The Bad Plus, Rochester Jazz Festival

The Bad Plus are truly the rock stars of jazz, adored by their fans. And the individual players seem to each have their own fan base, especially the drummer, David King. The bass player in the middle holds the wildly divergent classically tinged piano player on the left and the raucous angular drummer on the right at bay while tying it all together. We saw them the last time they were here but really liked them this time. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
