Pretty bad

I like The Bad Plus. Here is their blog.

Ironically, the article I got the link from asks

And while it is refreshing that the Bad Plus are willing and able to adapt pop and rock tunes, couldn't, just once, the admittedly rock-ignorant Iverson introduce his bandmates to, say, a good Monk tune or two, rather than the influence going mainly in the reverse?

just as the most recent blog post states:

As for the covers, many ideas have been discarded. Maybe a real jazz classic like "Monk's Mood" would work

But I doubt King and Anderson need Iverson to introduce them to Monk...
