I feel like I've already received my Christmas present this year.
The Bad Plus

This morning I - along with Midmorning listeners - was treated to an in-studio performance of The Bad Plus, the Midwestern jazz trio that's made a name for itself in New York and around the world for its distinct style. Reid Anderson, Ethan Iverson and Dave King name musical influences as diverse as Ornette Coleman, Black Sabbath, David Bowie and Jelly Roll Morton.
After ten years together the band released "Never Stop" - today they played music from that album and others as they looked back at a decade of confounding musical expectations.
This is NOT the hour with The Bad Plus
Susan - thanks for bringing this to my attention! There was also a bad link on the Midmorning page - the correct audio should now be up.
Marianne -- It's still not The Bad Plus. (Thanks for turning me on to them, though--I went last night and enjoyed it immensely!)
Janet - glad you went!
Now it's the right audio link. Really.
