Catching Up with the Composer Vijay Iyer

From The New Yorker:

In 2009, the pianist and composer Vijay Iyer experienced what would normally be considered a “career year” in the jazz world. His album “Historicity” had striking original music and distinguished covers of songs by M.I.A. and Julius Hemphill. Yet to the surprise of Iyer, who had more than a decade of touring and recording under his belt, the album took off and became an end-of-year best-album pick among jazz critics. “I didn’t expect everyone to vote for me,” he said over lunch this week. This year has brought him even headier votes of institutional confidence. In addition to receiving a MacArthur “genius” grant and tenure in Harvard’s music department, Iyer has been at work in a variety of artistic practices—even by his standards of variety.
