Vijay Iyer Trio 
Ringling International Arts Festival, October 16-18

Acclaimed pianist-composer Vijay Iyer and his colleagues Marcus Gilmore and Stephan Crump have updated the classic jazz piano trio.  Their original music is influenced by the jazz piano titans such as Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Andrew Hill and Cecil Taylor; the classical sonorities of composers such as Reich, Ligeti, Debussy, and Bartok; a wide range of rock, soul, funk, hip-hop, dub, electronica, and African music; and the rhythmic vitality and melodic nuance of the music of Iyer’s Indian heritage.
