Trailblazing pianist Vijay Iyer, one of his generation's brightest jazz luminaries, explores jazz, pop and electronica vanguards with equal curiosity. You can hear the eclecticism throughout his impressively prolific portfolio the past few years: chamber works, a multimedia collaboration, a curatorial position as Musical Director of the Ojai Music Festival… Here he settles into a roomy residency with the fiery sextet featured on his 2017 album Far From Over (save for new additions bassist Nick Dunston bass and acclaimed drummer Tyshawn Sorey) on Jan 24–26, as well as in a smaller trio format Jan 22 and 23.
