Vijay Iyer Trio

By overwhelming consensus, the V​IJAY IYER TRIO (Vijay Iyer, piano; Stephan Crump, double bass; Marcus Gilmore, drums) has become one of the pivotal jazz bands of the twenty-first century. Described as “the best piano trio in jazz today” (D​er Spiegel)​, “the great new jazz piano trio” (T​he New York Times)​, “truly astonishing” (NPR), and “the best band in jazz” (PopMatters), the trio makes “cutting-edge music, but always accessible” (T​he Guardian)​– emotionally resonant and deeply interactive, radiating groove and brimming with polyrhythmic detail, rooted in tradition yet truly innovative in style and form.
