Named 2013 MacArthur Fellow the celebrated pianist Vijay has updated the classic jazz piano trio, creating a powerful, cutting–edge new music that is firmly grounded in groove and pulse, but also rhythmically intricate and highly interactive; fluidly improvisational, yet uncannily synchronized; emotionally compelling, as well as innovative in texture, style, and musical form. Grammy Award nominees and Downbeat’s “Jazz Group Of the Year” for 2012, the Vijay Iyer Trio is among the most celebrated ensembles in jazz. Jazz Standard welcomes back this great band featuring bassist Harish Raghavan and long–time drummer Marcus Gilmore. “The Vijay Iyer Trio has the potential to alter the scope, ambition and language of jazz piano forever.”– Jazzwise (Great Britain)

    Vijay Iyer Trio

    Jazz

    Emotionally resonant and deeply interactive, radiating groove and brimming with polyrhythmic detail, the sound of the Vijay Iyer Trio is rooted in tradition yet truly innovative in style and form. It has become one of the pivotal units of 21st century jazz, variously described as “the best piano trio in jazz today” (Der Spiegel), “the great new jazz piano trio” (The New York Times), “truly astonishing” (NPR), or simply “the best band in jazz” (PopMatters). Vijay Iyer’s latest ECM release is entitled a cosmic rhythm with each stroke, a collaboration with his “hero, friend and teacher,” trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith. “Trail­blazing…one of his generation’s brightest jazz luminaries!” – Time Out New York
