Pollstar: The Bad Plus returning
in January 2016 to Jazz at the Bistro

In a move that should surprise no one, the online tour information service Pollstar has added new listings showing The Bad Plus returning to St. Louis next year to perform Wednesday, January 6 through Saturday, January 9 at Jazz at the Bistro.

If said listings are accurate, 2016 then would be be the tenth consecutive year that The Bad Plus (pictured) will serve as the first touring act of the calendar year to headline at the Bistro.

The trio's recent endeavors have included a series of live performances with saxophonists Tim Berne and Sam Newsome and trumpeter Ron Miles, interpreting the music from Ornette Coleman's 1972 album Science Fiction; working on an upcoming album with saxophonist Joshua Redman that's set to come out in May; and continuing to perform  live dates in support of their most recent album, 2014's Inevitable Western.

As always, we remind you, dear reader, that listings on Pollstar should not be considered final until announced by the presenter or venue. But given that this particular booking is something of a tradition now, and considering Pollstar's near-spotless record of accuracy in such things, this one seems like a lock. In any event, Jazz St. Louis usually announces their upcoming season sometime in May, and whenever that announcement occurs, StLJN will have the details for you right here.
