April 9 - Pianist/Composer/Educator - Vijay Iyer

Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune.wrote, "By now, there can be no doubt that pianist-composer Iyer stands among the most daringly original jazz artists of [his] generation."

Iyer's sixteen recordings have covered so much ground at such a high level of acclaim that it is easy to forget that they all belong to the same person.  His brand new CD, "Accelerando", is the highly anticipated follow-up to his Grammy-nominated previous release, "Historicity",

Across this diverse output, Iyer's artistic vision remains unmistakable. His powerful, cutting-edge music is firmly grounded in groove and pulse, but also rhythmically intricate and highly interactive; fluidly improvisational, yet uncannily orchestrated; emotionally compelling, as well as innovative in texture, style, and musical form.
