7:30 p.m: The Bad Plus Joshua Redman

The Bad Plus bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King have a well-earned reputation for pushing the limits on what is expected of a piano-bass-drums trio. For almost two decades, the genre-smashing band has created an original repertoire of inventive music, along with iconoclastic covers of artists as divergent as Nirvana, Neil Young, Aphex Twin and Ornette Coleman.

For its appearance at the 2017 Reno Jazz Festival, the New York-based trio is joined by saxophonist Joshua Redman. It's a collaboration that began in 2011 with a handful of performances before they went into the studio to record The Bad Plus Joshua Redman, which was released in 2015.

Location: Lawlor Events Center
