The Bad Plus came together at the end of the 20th century and has avoided easy categorization ever since, winning critical hosannas and a legion of fans worldwide with their creativity, unique sound, and flair for live performance. Based in NYC, the intensely collaborative trio has constantly searched for rules to break and boundaries to cross, bridging genres and techniques. Except for its interpretation of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring”, the band’s last four albums focused almost exclusively on original compositions. “It’s Hard” marks the band’s return to the aspect of its roots that first made it famous: the deconstruction of songs from the Pop/Rock and R&B worlds.
