For the past ten years, The Bad Plus –Reid Anderson, Ethan Iverson and David King – have broken down the walls of jazz convention and created an uncompromising body of work. Few jazz groups in recent memory have amassed such acclaim, drawing audiences both traditional and mainstream. While the bulk of their output has been original music, they have deconstructed songs in the pop, rock as well as the country and classical music idioms. Their current release, Never Stop, is the first album by The Bad Plus to consist entirely of originals. Recorded in Minnesota with a live, stripped-down sound, Never Stop showcases the band's range as well as its three distinct personalities. From gentle and melodic to fierce and abstract, from swing to 80's techno, Never Stop is tied together by a group sound that embraces diversity as strength.

By any standard, jazz or otherwise, it is moving, mighty music… bad to the bone, hot players with hard-rock hearts. – Rolling Stone

The Bad Plus are the Coen brothers of jazz: Midwesterners, both ironic and dead earnest, technically brilliant, beyond versatile, a little chilly sometimes, but funny, surprising, and pretty hard to pin down. – The New Yorker
