The Bad Plus—with their careening piano rhythms and rollicking covers of pop songs like "Tom Sawyer"—have long been a bastion for the weirder side of jazz.  Drummer Dave King talks job history with A Blog Supreme, describing his experiences as a paper boy, janitor, delivery driver, and ultimately as drummer for one of jazz's boldest outfits.
