Grammy-nominated pianist, bandleader and composer Vijay Iyer launched his Jazz residency at Wigmore Hall last season in performance with Wadada Leo Smith and brought his eponymous Trio to the Hall in July. For the final part of his series, Iyer, named as DownBeat’s Artist of the Year for a second successive time in June 2016, expands his classic Trio with three truly great horn players, coming together as the Vijay Iyer Sextet.
Known for his pioneering creativity and adventurous approach to music-making, the Guardian recently hailed Iyer as ‘one of the world’s most inventive new-generation jazz pianists’. The final night of the Vijay Iyer Jazz Residency is one not to miss.
