Vijay Iyer Trio

Vijay Iyer Trio_eSROcutting-edge music, but always accessible” – The Guardian

By overwhelming consensus, the Vijay Iyer Trio, featuring bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore, has become one of the pivotal jazz bands of the 21st century. Described as “truly astonishing” (NPR) and “the best band in jazz” (PopMatters), the trio makes music that’s emotionally resonant and deeply interactive, radiating groove and brimming with polyrhythmic detail, rooted in tradition yet truly innovative in style and form.

Crucially, as DownBeat notes, “the Vijay Iyer Trio is, at its core, a working band,” distinguished most of all by a profound, seemingly effortless unity, developed over hundreds of performances in nearly a dozen years. As Howard Reich wrote in The Chicago Tribune, “The three players practically have become a single rhythmic organism… one of the great rhythm units of the day,” while Jazzwise claims the trio “has the potential to alter the scope, ambition, and language of jazz piano forever.”
