Vijay Iyer Trio (Expired)

Image Gallery

Vijay Iyer, an American of Indian descent, is one of the most charismatic member of the new generation of jazz musicians. His sound brings classic jazz tradition and his Asian heritage together, also featuring other modern idioms such rock, funk, soul, dub, electronica, hip hop and African polyrhythm. Vijay Iyer was the undoubted jazz personality of 2011, when Downbeat polled 186 international music critics and honoured him, and his group, in no fewer than five separate categories.

Needless to say, such an amazing outcome occurred for the first-time in the 60-year history of the institution! His latest album is especially eclectic; rhythm-led, the group members communicate and coordinate as if they are graced with telepathic abilities, while the influences of Ellington, Coltrane and Monk contribute to a unique acoustic product “full” of the absence of musical preconceptions.
