Vijay Iyer Trio

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

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
