  • 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.

  • Vijay Iyer Trio Live: NPR Music at Winter Jazzfest

    7:38

    'Actions Speak' recorded Jan. 7, 2012 at (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York, N.Y.

    Pianist and composer Vijay Iyer leads a trio that traffics in grooves, crackling and heavy. He has a distinctive way of exploiting dissonance and rhythmic space at the piano; he's joined by a deeply resonant, gut-punching bassist (Stephan Crump) and a drummer with an advanced understanding of time (Marcus Gilmore). The results are beats that feel borrowed from a future age; alternately, they're new lenses on jazz's big-picture history.

    The band led off its packed-house performance at Le Poisson Rouge with a number by the disco-funk band Heatwave (The Star of a Story), created a sort of acoustic Detroit techno (Hood), stretched out a Michael Jackson classic (Human Nature) and played Ronnie Foster's Mystic Brew with full knowledge of its sampling by A Tribe Called Quest. A few more originals rounded out this slightly abbreviated set, a partial preview of the upcoming album Accelerando. Full of stutter steps and snare claps, power chords and low end, the concert proved a clear highlight of the 2012 NYC Winter Jazzfest.

  • George Lewis and Vijay Iyer in Concert

    1:38:36

    WELLESLEY COLLEGE PRESENTS:

    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.

    EPISODE 1:
    Christian speaks with pianists and composers Vijay Ayer and Helen Sung

    VIJAY IYER
    Composer-pianist VIJAY IYER (pronounced “VID-jay EYE-yer”) has carved out a unique path as an influential, prolific, shape-shifting presence in modern music. He was described by Pitchfork as “one of the best in the world at what he does,” by the Los Angeles Weekly as “a boundless and deeply important young star,” by the New York Times as a “social conscience, multimedia collaborator, system builder, rhapsodist, historical thinker and multicultural gateway,” and by Minnesota Public Radio as “an American treasure.” A musical innovator, an active collaborator, and a member of multiple artistic communities, Iyer continues to reimagine the role of the musician in the 21st century.

    Iyer has been voted DownBeat Magazine’s Artist of the Year four times – in 2018, 2016, 2015 and 2012 – and Artist of the Year in Jazz Times’ Critics’ and Readers’ Polls for 2017. Iyer was named a 2017 United States Artists Fellow, a 2013 MacArthur Fellow, and a 2012 Doris Duke Performing Artist. He holds a lifetime appointment as the Franklin D. and Florence Rosenblatt Professor of the Arts at Harvard University, with a joint affiliation with the Department of Music and the Department of African and African American Studies.

    HELEN SUNG
    Pianist/composer Helen Sung has spent most of her life in two distinct worlds. A classical student from a young age who transitioned to jazz in her early twenties, she understands the limitless range and potential of the piano in a way that few specialists in either genre can. In addition, as the daughter of Chinese immigrants, Sung embodies two diverse cultures and has discovered a musical voice and identity that are true to both - and more importantly, true to herself.

    Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Helen studied classical piano and violin and attended Houston's acclaimed High School for the Performing & Visual Arts (HSPVA). Continuing classical piano studies at the University of Texas at Austin, a chance meeting with jazz music caused an eventual course change. Sung went on to graduate from the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance (at the New England Conservatory) and win the Kennedy Center's Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition.

    Now based in New York City, Sung has worked with such luminaries as the late Clark Terry, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Terri Lyne Carrington, Wynton Marsalis (who named her as one of his Who's Got Next: Jazz Musicians to Watch!), MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter, and Cecile McLorin Salvant.

    “I’ve been playing and thinking about the Bach Cello Suites for over three decades,” says Haimovitz, “and with these new commissions – a culminating moment in my relationship with the Suites – I feel like I’m giving back to Bach. I’ve asked six composers, whom I admire so much, to engage with his music. It’s my form of time travel – going back into the mind of Bach through the compositional process of these composers today.” (Matt Haimovitz)
