Vijay Iyer Trio

Reynolds Industries Theater


A “boundless and deeply important young star” (LA Weekly), Iyer sits at the head of a new table of jazz titans, calling on a grab bag of sources—foreign and domestic, pop and jazz—to forge a bold new sound that’s American to its core, with a “liquid urgency that consistently staggers the imagination” (All Music Guide). His audacious compositions and nervy piano line have already placed him in the pantheon of modern greats, “redefining the nature of modern jazz pianism” (Chicago Tribune).
