A founding member of the Bad Plus, pianist Ethan Iverson has been serious student of jazz for most of his life and at the forefront of generation of contemporary practitioners for the past two decades. For over a decade Ethan has also been conducting interviews with elders statesmen of jazz via his blog Do the Math, documenting crucial conversations through a most unique lens. After seventeen years, as he gets ready to leave the Bad Plus, Ethan joined me for a conversation at my apartment this past Friday to discuss his history with the band, his upbringing, how he feels responsible to the tradition of jazz masters and what the future holds for him.
