“Even as they negotiate complex parameters of rhythm and harmony, the [Vijay Iyer] trio’s expertly attuned playing evokes the openness of improvisation and the urgency of justice.”
Among the most acclaimed pianists of his generation, Vijay Iyer consistently expands the musical, textural, and expressive possibilities of jazz through live performance and recordings. Iyer returns to the ICA with his intrepid Trio featuring bassist Linda May Han Oh and drummer Tyshawn Sorey. The group’s newest album, Uneasy, reflects musically on America’s current political and social turmoil, and in the words of Iyer, “reminds us that the most soothing, healing music is often born of and situated within profound unrest.”
