Together now for more than a decade, bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King -- otherwise known as the Bad Plus -- are famed for their fearless mix of improvisational jazz with an indie-rock ethos. They're also known for their adventurous reworkings of pop, classical and even country tunes ranging from Ornette Coleman to Black Sabbath to Nirvana. Their most recent album, Never Stop, consists of entirely new originals and covers a range of musical styles from swing to '80s techno. Learn More
There is a parking garage literally RIGHT next to the venue. I don't recall the cost sadly (average for the area I think), but I will say it was very well guarded and if you do us it, remember to take your ticket with you as it is your key for elevator use! Also Parking technically begins on the 3rd level.Dirty Bourbon River Show travel • Aug 19 2014 star this tip starred

This group, on its first U.S. tour, totally astonished us--with their energy and skill, and with the sheer beauty of their music. Each of the nine performers could be a soloist in his/her own right; instead, they blend their work together to create a densely textured whole. These guys deserve to be stars.

The show was amazing not at all what I expected. Thank you so much for the deal. I had never been to The Triple Door before and with this amazing deal I was able to experience a new band and new venue which I will definately attend again.
Quotes & Highlights
Yemen Blues is an original and fascinating meeting of traditional Yemenite melodies & the world of blues, jazz and funk. The flavours of West African roots and enhanced modern compositions are bringing together a breathtaking experience and a mixture of beautiful complex grooves. It is the powerful outcome of Ravid Kahalani’s musical journey from his Yemenite roots to western influences – a joyful oasis in the middle of the desert.
Yemen Blues was founded by Ravid Kahalani, a rising star in Israel who grew up to a traditional Yemenite family, learned the language and the traditional chants of his origin, and extended his influences in the areas of blues and West African soul, from the Sahara desert thru classical Opera singing to Afro American blues.
