Uncanny Chemistry: Vijay Iyer Trio
Vijay Iyer, piano; Linda May Han Oh, bass; Tyshawn Sorey, drums

By overwhelming consensus, the Vijay Iyer Trio has become one of the pivotal jazz bands of the twenty-first century. Described as “the best piano trio in jazz today” (Der Spiegel), “truly astonishing” (NPR) and “the best band in jazz” (PopMatters), the trio’s music is emotionally resonant and deeply interactive, radiating groove and brimming with polyrhythmic detail, rooted in tradition yet truly innovative in style and form.

The Trio’s Uneasy was named one of the best recordings of 2021 in The New Yorker and JazzTimes, among many others. Pitchfork calls their latest release Compassion “irresistibly listenable…widescreen in both emotion and concept.”

“Presto! Here is the great new jazz piano trio.” — The New York Times
