Vijay Iyer, Linda May Han Oh, Tyshawn Sorey
The jazz trio made up of pianist Vijay Iyer, bassist Linda May Han Oh and drummer Tyshawn Sorey showcase their innovative and dynamic new album, UnEasy.
'We have an energy together that is very distinct. It has a different kind of propulsion, a different impulse and a different spectrum of colours,' Iyer says.
UnEasy has wowed critics, and was picked as The Guardian's jazz album of the month.
Described by the New York Times as a 'social conscience, multimedia collaborator, system builder, rhapsodist, historical thinker and multicultural gateway', Iyer is one of the leading music-makers of his generation.
His musical language is grounded in the rhythmic traditions of South Asia and West Africa, the African American music of the 60s and 70s, and the lineage of Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Alice Coltrane, and Geri Allen.
He has written music for Arturo O'Farrill and Darcy James Argue, remixed classic recordings of Talvin Singh and Meredith Monk, and collaborated with Henry Threadgill, Reggie Workman and Zakir Hussain.
