Grammy-nominated composer-

pianist Vijay Iyer weaves

improvisational, sophisticated jazz in

an ethereal program with cosmic

rhythms. The 44-year-old’s profile in

The New Yorker

described his music

as “jubilant and dramatic” and

The

New York Times

observed that

“There’s probably no frame wide

enough to encompass the creative

output of the pianist Vijay Iyer.” He

was named

DownBeat Magazine’s

2015 Artist of the Year and 2014

Pianist of the Year, a 2013 MacArthur

Fellow, and a 2012 Doris Duke

Performing Artist. Vijay Iyer has

released twenty albums covering

remarkably diverse terrain. “He may

be the most celebrated musician in

jazz,” noted Steve Greenlee. Vijay

Iyer’s sextet will scintillate with a

night of pure jazz.
