The Bad Plus – Everybody Wants to Rule The World

Posted on 2 October, 2013  in Around The Horn

The Bad Plus is a modern jazz piano trio led by pianist, Ethan Iverson.  Iverson studied some with pianist, Fred Hersch (see Hersch interview on this blog).  This trio is doing some very interesting things.  Today, my friend, drummer and colleague posted this video on his Facebook page.  Thus, I thought I’d post it here.  For those of you who grew up during the 80s, you’ll recognize this song originally written and performed by the band, Tears for Fears.
