«There’s probably no frame wide enough to encompass the creative output of the pianist Vijay Iyer. » — The New York Times

In a Bay Area premiere, pianist and composer Vijay Iyer augments his band with trio of horns that expands his music’s melodic and harmonic language. Cornetist Graham Haynes is a founder of Steve Coleman’s groundbreaking M-Base Collective and a major figure at the intersection of jazz, hip-hop, and the avant-garde. The son of drumming legend Roy Haynes, he’s led nearly a dozen albums and collaborated with Cassandra Wilson, The Roots, Bill Laswell, and David Murray, among others. Visionary alto saxophonist Steve Lehman leads a number of exploratory ensembles including his acclaimed Octet whose 2009 debut album, Travail, Transformation & Flow, was named Jazz Album of the Year by The New York Times. He is a member of the Fieldwork trio with Iyer and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, and has led or co-led thirteen sessions including his latest, Sélébéyone. Jamaica-born tenor saxophonist Mark Shim is a member of Lehman’s octet and an established bandleader, recording three albums for Blue Note. He has performed and recorded with a pantheon of greats including Elvin Jones, Betty Carter, Hamiett Bluiett, Mose Allison, Greg Osby, and the Mingus Big Band.
