The Bad Plus: On Sacred Ground


Rather than write my own take on the remarkable concert Saturday night in Reynolds Theater at Duke, I offer a link to Ethan Iverson’s blog, which has additional pertinent links to follow.  The consensus among a group of specialized folks that I’ve polled informally (such as TBP this past weekend) is that nobody in the U.S. of A is presenting performing arts with more vision, creativity, and thorough care than Duke Performances director Aaron Greenwald.  We all knew this.  But to hear it from the artists who work all over the map is something else.  Duke, the City of Durham, and all of us in the Triangle (including Raleigh and Chapel Hill) are indebted.

p.s. You can hear TBP talking about the show before it happened on NPR’s Weekend Edition.
