Vijay Iyer

Vijay Iyer pursues an atypical career mixing virtuosity, great knowledge of jazz and contemporary review of his Indian origins, with a scientific approach of music.
This American pianist of Tamil descent multiplies the rewards. an unprecedented “quintuple crown” in the 2012 Down Beat International Critics Poll (winning Jazz Artist of the Year, Pianist of the Year, Jazz Album of the Year, Jazz Group of the Year, and Rising Star Composer categories) or the 2013 ECHO Award (the “German Grammy”) for best international pianist.
“Break Stuff” sort en février : album très attendu pour le label ECM. Vijay Iyer y retrouve ses deux compères Stephan Crump (contrebasse) et Marcus Gilmore (batterie).
Agenda Vijay Iver
«To the brilliant touch and the reserved expressionism of the pianist, join the feline plasticity of the polyrhythmic play of Marcus Gilmore (drums) and Stephan Crump's convergent sound depth (bass).»
