Vijay Iyer joins forces with bassist Linda May Han Oh and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, both acclaimed composers and bandleaders in their own right. “Modern jazz in peak form…Navigating strong emotions with as much sensation as reason, this music makes close listening cathartic.” (Michelle Mercer, DownBeat)
“A self–taught pianist with a scholarly background, Vijay Iyer arrived at jazz stardom through a side door. But in the past five years or so, he has increasingly been invited into some of music’s most rarefied spaces, largely because of his iconoclasm, not in spite of it. Genre definitions have largely dissolved; nondenominational leaders are needed.” (Giovanni Russonello, NY Times, 6.7.2017) Jazz Standard is proud to present the award–winning pianist, composer and bandleader in this multi–format, multi–night engagement.
