Photos: The Bad Plus @ Jazz Alley

While going through my photos from this show, I realized that most of my shots – and my favorite ones – were of drummer David King. The man is nothing short of a genius on drums. I think I was smiling through the entire show as I marveled at his skill. Aside from King’s amazing drumming, The Bad Plus gave what I would easily say is the best jazz show I’ve seen to date. I was mildly disappointed not to hear their cover of Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” but I always wonder if some bands avoid things like that when they come to Seattle. Whatever, the reason, the show was great regardless. If the photos aren’t enough – check out this video of David King ripping through a drum solo going in to “Nevermind”.
