One night only at the Senate Garage, Kingston NY
Ethan Iverson was a founding member of THE BAD PLUS, a game-changing collective with Reid Anderson and David King. The New York Times called The Bad Plus …Better than anyone at melding the sensibilities of post-60’s jazz and indie rock. During his 17-year tenure TBP performed in venues as diverse as the Village Vanguard, Carnegie Hall, and Bonnaroo; collaborated with Joshua Redman, Bill Frisell, and the Mark Morris Dance Group; and created a faithful arrangement of Igor Stravinky’s The Rite of Spring and a radical reinvention of Ornette Coleman’s Science Fiction. Iverson also has been in the critically-acclaimed Billy Hart quartet for well over a decade and occasionally performs with an elder statesman like Albert “Tootie” Heath or Ron Carter. For over 15 years Iverson’s website DO THE M@TH has been a repository of musician-to-musician interviews and analysis, surely one reason Time Out New York selected Iverson as one of 25 essential New York jazz icons. That proved to be true when hearing him at Zinc Bar May 3 (2019) featuring Ron Carter on bass and Al Foster on drums!
