Pianist, composer and MacArthur fellow Vijay Iyer leads his venerated sextet in two sets. The band features some of the most intriguing creative musicians on the scene, including bassist Stephan Crump, cornetist Graham Haynes and drummer Jeremy Dutton. As a pianist, Iyer builds fleet patterns often centered on pounding bass rhythms and touched by hip-hop and electronic music, as well as sounds from around the globe.
