Notes and Editorial Reviews

With a reputation for deconstructing popular songs and the avant-garde, it seems natural for the bad boys of jazz, The Bad Plus, to record their version of Stravinsky’s controversial masterpiece The Rite of Spring. This new recording captures The Bad Plus’ unique version of the piece that they debuted on tour in 2011 in a multi-media program entitled “On Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.” The show received critical acclaim at every stop with the New York Times calling their interpretation “electrifying,” and the Boston Globe describing it as “exhilarating...dramatic, dynamic.” With a reputation for deconstructing popular songs and the avant-garde, it seems natural for the bad boys of jazz, The Bad Plus, to record their version of Stravinsky’s controversial masterpiece The Rite of Spring.
