Returning to Symphony Center in a special performance featuring influential guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel and the group's new pianist Orrin Evans, The Bad Plus draws from a wide range of influences to create compelling original songs and reinventions of hits by artists such as Blondie, Nirvana and Black Sabbath. 

José James’ smooth baritone voice and coolly assertive delivery have made him “one of the suavest vocal improvisers on the scene” (Pitchfork). He makes his Symphony Center debut with a tribute to superstar R&B singer-songwriter Bill Withers.
