WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jazz pianists Vijay Iyer and Robert Glasper make the possibilities for new sound seem endless. Each artist blends his own compositions from unique cultural backgrounds and styles. This is unique opportunity to hear what's next in jazz from two of music's bright young stars. Iyer is a singular talent - a forceful, rhythmically invigorating performer and an exceptional, forward-thinking composer drawing from African, Asian and European musical lineages to create original music in the American creative tradition. His music strikes the listener as both emotionally expressive and structurally sophisticated with exuberant improvisations anchored in cyclical rhythmic structures and ringing harmonies. Glasper has made waves throughout the music world as leader of both the acoustic Robert Glasper Trio and the electric, hip-hop-oriented Robert Glasper Experiment. The Houston native puts his enviable versatility front and center, emphasizing the different hemispheres of his musical brain at the same time. Hailed by listeners and critics, Glasper has garnered the respect of the toughest audience of all: musicians from across the jazz spectrum.
