  • Vijay Iyer Trio: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    25:27

    Vijay Iyer is probably best known as a pianist and bandleader in the African-American creative improvisational tradition — most say jazz for short — though he's also several other things in music. He's a composer of chamber, large ensemble and mixed-media works; a Harvard professor; a student of Indian classical music; a father and New York City resident. Committed as he is to multiplicity, there's one place you can see many of his interests distilled at once: the trio he's led for nearly a dozen years.

    The long-standing relationship he's forged with Stephan Crump (bass) and Marcus Gilmore (drums) accommodates all sorts of risk and translates into reward. The three play daring games of rhythmic interaction. They take Iyer's pieces designed for strings or big band and reduce without losing vitality. They do John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk, Flying Lotus and M.I.A.

    The morning after a gig in Washington, D.C., the trio got up to visit NPR headquarters before a noon train back to New York. (There was a lot of espresso involved.) In one continuous performance, Iyer, Crump and Gilmore treated us to a few pieces from Iyer's deep catalog, including two from the new album Break Stuff — ending on the scintillating Hood, inspired by pioneering Detroit techno DJ Robert Hood. After the blaze of the main set, they played a calm and pretty theme dedicated to the late poet and activist Amiri Baraka – it originally came Iyer's suite for string quartet and piano Time, Place, Action. There's excitement, daring, overload, and speed in Vijay Iyer's music, but, as we were reminded: Just like anyone else, he looks for beauty too.--PATRICK JARENWATTANANON

  • Vijay Iyer Trio At Metropolitan Museum of Art

    1:38:27

    The pianist and composer Vijay Iyer frames his new trio recording, Break Stuff, around the idea of musical breaks: a break in music is still music: a span of time in which to act, he writes. Formally, he's referring to breakbeats and other musical breakdowns, but more generally, Iyer's trio exploits opportunities to rupture convention. The configuration featuring Stephan Crump on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums, together now for over 11 years, has made an art of collective rhythmic risk-taking, whether on Iyer's compositions or while nodding to disruptive musical heroes like Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Detroit techno DJ Robert Hood. Jazz Night In America visits the Temple of Dendur, the Egyptian temple which resides within a massive room in New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art, to take in a set from the Vijay Iyer.

    5:37

    Composer-pianist, electronic-music producer and 2013 MacArthur Fellow Vijay Iyer has built a career of making connections in music — literally. For this episode of Q2 Spaces, we visited the East Harlem apartment where Iyer has lived for the past two years with his wife and daughter. His piano is set up on the first floor in a room lined mostly with books about neuroscience, music and listening. On a small table are carved Indian deities — his parents moved to the United States from India 50 years ago — and leaning against the wall is a poster of his hero Thelonious Monk. More:

    George Lewis and Vijay Iyer in Concert

    George Lewis collaborates in concert with Vijay Iyer, one of the most exciting jazz pianists in the contemporary scene. Lewis and Iyer perform with Lewis's Voyager system, a digital improvising device capable of listening and responding to human improvisatory performers.

    Grammy-nominated composer-pianist VIJAY IYER was described by Pitchfork as one of the most interesting and vital young pianists in jazz today, by The New Yorker as one of today's most important pianists... extravagantly gifted... brilliantly eclectic, and by the Los Angeles Weekly as a boundless and deeply important young star. He was voted the 2010 Musician of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association and named one of the 50 Most Influential Global Indians by GQ India. Iyer has released fifteen albums as a leader, most recently Tirtha (2011), Solo (2010), and the multiple-award-winning Historicity (2009), which features the Vijay Iyer Trio (Iyer, piano; Marcus Gilmore, drums; Stephan Crump, bass). Historicity was a 2010 Grammy Nominee for Best Instrumental Jazz Album, and was named #1 Jazz Album of the Year in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Metro Times, National Public Radio, PopMatters.com, the Village Voice Jazz Critics Poll, and the Downbeat International Critics Poll. The trio won the 2010 Echo Award (the German Grammy) for best international ensemble and the Downbeat Critics Poll for rising star small ensemble of the year. Iyer's many awards also include the Alpert Award in the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, and numerous composer commissions.

    A polymath whose career has spanned the sciences, the humanities and the arts, Iyer holds a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from Yale University, plus a Masters in Physics and a Ph.D. in Technology and the Arts from the University of California, Berkeley. He has published articles in Journal of Consciousness Studies, Wire, Music Perception, JazzTimes, and The Best Writing on Mathematics: 2010.
