Vijay Iyer’s week continues with the Bay Area premiere of the most recent iteration of his superlative trio.
By the time Iyer released his first trio album with the standard bass and drums configuration he’d established himself as one of the most accomplished and conceptually probing pianists of his generation. His lavishly praised 2009 album Historicity introduced his powerhouse working band with bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore, which served as Iyer’s primary trio vehicle for the next decade (with Iyer’s fellow MacArthur Fellow Tyshawn Sorey sometimes taking over the drum chair).
