The Bad Plus from Big Ears, Part 2
Friday, December 4 | 8pm (eastern)
The Bad Plus — Reid Anderson (bass), Orrin Evans (piano), and Dave King (drums) — came to Knoxville 111-year old Bijou Theatre in October 2020 to record a pair of concerts for The Big Ears Festival’s ‘Sites & Sounds’ streaming initiative. This was the first time that the trio had played together since mid-January. The first concert of the set aired in mid-October to acclaim. Here’s the second show — it’s a looser and deeper set — a performance that draws still closer to the essence of this indispensable trio.
