The Bad Plus at Jazz Alley [15 Dec 2010|01:43pm]

It's them, I promise. My camera may have been drinking Maker's Manhattans when I wasn't looking. It was an awesome show -- they played all material from their new album, Never Stop. I agree with the Guardian comment about them -- "If the Coen Brothers put together a jazz trio, perhaps it would be like this..."

On Saturday I also saw Bela Fleck and the Flecktones there. I don't have a crappy picture to show for it, but it was a great performance -- which included the 12 Days of Christmas performed in 12 keys and 12 time signatures (or so they claimed, I am in no position to verify that) and the surprise (to me) appearance of Alash, the Siberian throat singers.
