Vijay Iyer Trio

Sponsored by TricorBraun

Acclaimed pianist-composer Vijay Iyer and his colleagues Marcus Gilmore (drums) and Stephan Crump (bass) have 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. These shows at Jazz at the Bistro coincide with the trio’s release of Accelerando (due out March 13) an intense and visceral album of original music and re-imagined covers. Accelerando is the highly anticipated follow-up to the group’s GRAMMY-nominated Historicity (2009), which became one of the decade’s landmark jazz albums after garnering numerous awards and topping many critics’ year-end lists. The Vijay Iyer Trio also won the 2010 Echo Jazz Award (the “German Grammy”) for best international ensemble and the 2010 Downbeat Critics Poll for rising star small group. The New York Times says, “here is the great new jazz piano trio.”

“…among the most daringly original jazz artists of the under-40 generation.” – Chicago Tribune
