“[one of] today’s most important pianists… extravagantly gifted” – The New Yorker


Vijay Iyer is an American composer, pianist, bandleader, producer, and writer based in New York City. The New York Times has called him a “social conscience, multimedia collaborator, system builder, rhapsodist, historical thinker and multicultural gateway”. He received a MacArthur Fellowship, a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a United States Artist Fellowship, a Grammy nomination, the Alpert Award in the Arts, and two German Echo awards, and was voted Downbeat Magazine’s Jazz Artist of the Year four times in the last decade.

His new trio album, Compassion, will be released in February 2024. Vijay says about the album: “The unease I experience making art in times of suffering never goes away, nor should it; that tension shapes the creative process at every stage. Its counterpart, the response to its call, is the rejuvenating feeling of making music with, for, and among people. I am endlessly inspired by Tyshawn and Linda, two extraordinary musicians of consequence, who open their hearts, listen with care, and take purposeful action. We developed all of this music onstage, out in the world, in spaces of community and encounter. I am no more qualified than anyone else to tell you anything new about compassion. But I hope that this word, placed alongside this music, offers us all a reminder, an assurance, a plea, and perhaps an inspiration – to find each other in this together.”

Vijay Iyer has carved out a unique path as an influential, prolific, shape-shifting presence in twenty-first-century music. Iyer has created a consistently innovative, emotionally resonant body of work, earning him a place as one of the leading music-makers of his generation. He has been praised by Pitchfork as “one of the best in the world at what he does,” by the Los Angeles Weekly as “a boundless and deeply important young star,” and by Minnesota Public Radio as “an American treasure.”

Recommended for Fans of Craig Taborn, Fred Hersch, Robert Glasper and Brian Blade.
