Green Guest Artist Series: Vijay Iyer Sextet

Grammy-nominated composer-pianist Vijay Iyer (pronounced “VID-jay EYE-yer”) has been described by Pitchfork as "one of the most interesting and vital young pianists in jazz today.” The Vijay Iyer Sextet is a group of generation-defining, virtuoso improvisers – horn players Graham HaynesSteve Lehman and Mark Shim alongside rhythm partners bassist Stephan Crump and one of a revolving cast of stellar drummers - Tyshawn SoreyMarcus Gilmore, and Jeremy Dutton - who leverage a wealth of jazz history even as they push it boldly forward. The music ranges from the thrillingly explosive, to the cathartically elegiac; with melodic hooks, entrancing atmosphere, rhythmic muscle and an elemental spirit all part of the allure.


Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. Closed Sundays and major holidays.
