Event Summary

Founding member of the groundbreaking contemporary jazz trio the Bad Plus, pianist, composer and writer Ethan Iverson is revered on the international jazz scene. During their 17 years together TBP performed in venues as diverse as the Village Vanguard, Carnegie Hall, and Bonnaroo; collaborated with Joshua Redman, Bill Frisell, and the Mark Morris Dance Group; and created a faithful arrangement of Igor Stravinky’s The Rite of Spring. Lately in the UK for his collaboration with leading choreographer Mark Morris - a tribute to the Beatles called “Pepperland” – Ethan will be reuniting for one night only here at the 606 to play with British alto saxophonist Martin Speake. Martin and Ethan met in Canada at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 1990, and have been ongoing though sporadic collaborators, recording the CD “My Ideal” in 2002 for Basho Records. Fifteen years later, their quartet album of Martin’s compositions plus arrangements of Charlie Parker’s ‘Charlie’s Wig’ and the standard ‘Dancing In The Dark’ entitled “Intention” (Ubuntu) was released in 2018. Over a long and diverse career, Martin has recorded 18 albums under his own name, including the ECM release “Change of Heart” with Paul Motian, Bobo Stenson & Mick Hutton and performed with, among many others, Django Bates, Airto Moreira & Flora Purim, Julian Arguelles, Jim Mullen and Mike Outram.
