The jazz trio The Bad Plus is well known for covering Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and Stravinsky. But on its new CD “Never Stop,” the group focuses on its own material, melding sounds from rock, jazz and even classical music.

We speak with bassist Reid Anderson and pianist Ethan Iverson, who along with drummer Dave King, form the nucleus of The Bad Plus.  They begin their U.S. tour this week.
