Earthwise welcomes Ethan Iverson, Marta Sanchez

Pianist, composer, and writer Ethan Iverson was a founding member of The Bad Plus, a game-changing collective with Reid Anderson and David King. The New York Times called TBP “Better than anyone at melding the sensibilities of post-60’s jazz and indie rock.” During his 17-year tenure, 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 Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and a radical reinvention of Ornette Coleman’s Science Fiction.


A fine pianist who is a particularly inventive player returns to Palo Alto after appearances with Earthwise at The Mitch as a duo and at Lytton Plaza as a quartet in previous years. She actually will play five shows as a residency.
