Vijay Iyer Trio: Break Stuff

Read "Break Stuff" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Intrepid pianist and composer Vijay Iyer's Break Stuff is an intimate work brimming with an intense poetry and a subtly dramatic ambience. The latter results from the complementary and contrasting elements, which are intricately interwoven within each of the dozen tracks that comprise the album.

On the exquisite “Mystery Woman," for instance, Iyer plays ...

Vijay Iyer Trio: Break Stuff

Read "Break Stuff" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Dopo l'escursione nel terreno minato del quartetto d'archi e delle ambientazioni cameristiche del precedente lavoro per ECM (Mutations), risolta al solito brillantemente, Vijay Iyer ritorna allo storico trio acustico, con Stephan Crump e Marcus Gilmore, attivo da undici anni, qui al debutto per la prestigiosa etichetta bavarese. E lo fa licenziando il solito grande album, aggiungendo ...

Vijay Iyer Trio: Break Stuff

Read "Break Stuff" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

From the time of his debut as a leader nearly twenty years ago on Architextures (Asian Improv Records, 1996), pianist and composer Vijay Iyer has been a great experimenter.

Vijay Iyer Trio: Accelerando

Read "Accelerando" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Stessa etichetta, stessa formazione, stessa miscela di composizioni originali, di standard jazz e di pop covers, stessa grande musica. Ci riferiamo al Vijay Iyer Trio che bissa lo splendido Historicity con l'altrettanto splendido Accelerando. Partiamo da “Human Nature," per chi scrive la vetta dell'album. Difficile per tutti confrontarsi con le versioni in studio e soprattutto live che Miles ...

Vijay Iyer Trio: Accelerando

Read "Accelerando" reviewed by Troy Collins

On the surface, Accelerando follows the same basic format as Historicity (ACT Music, 2009), the debut of pianist Vijay Iyer's working trio with bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore. Though once again divided between Iyer's complex originals and some surprising covers, this eclectic sophomore session attains an even greater sense of cohesion than its predecessor, ...
