Keyboardist-composer Vijay Iyer’s work in the sextat format finds him reaching a new peak, furthering an artistry that led him to be voted DownBeat Artist of the Year in 2012, 2015 and 2016 and for The Guardian to dub his work the “dizzying pinnacle of contemporary jazz multitasking.” With horn players Graham Haynes, Steve Lehman and Mark Shim alongside rhythm partners Stephan Crump and Jeremy Dutton – the group leverage a wealth of jazz history while pushing boldly forward. “This group has a lot of fire in it, but also a lot of earth, because the tones are so deep, the timbres and textures,” Iyer says. “There’s also air and water – the music moves.”
