Grammy Award-nominated composer-pianist Vijay Iyer is 'one of the most interesting and vital young pianists in jazz today' (Pitchfork). At Wesleyan, Mr. Iyer will perform with bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Tyshawn Sorey MA '11. JazzTimes described a recent performance by Mr. Iyer's trio as 'intensely improvisational' in which 'rhythm was paramount,' the group's 'precision made possible by their decade of playing together...The fun was in witnessing the group's distinctive redefinition of the jazz piano trio.' A Crowell Concert Series event presented by the Music Department and the Center for the Arts.
