By overwhelming consensus, the Vijay Iyer Trio has become one of the pivotal jazz bands of the twenty-first century. Described as “the best piano trio in jazz today” (Der Spiegel) and “the great new jazz piano trio” (The New York Times), the group is “cutting-edge, but always accessible” (The Guardian). This music is emotionally resonant and deeply interactive, radiating groove and brimming with polyrhythmic detail; rooted in tradition yet truly innovative in style and form. The trio has earned the admiration of audiences, musicians, and journalists worldwide with its two previous albums, Historicity (2009) and Accelerando (2012), which were named #1 jazz album of their respective years in both the DownBeat and JazzTimes polls of hundreds of international critics.
