The Guardian calls keyboardist-composer Vijay Iyer, “one of the world’s most inventive new-generation jazz pianists,” and The New Yorker describes him as “extravagantly gifted… brilliantly eclectic.” Iyer’s new ECM Records release, “Far From Over,” features his dynamically commanding sextet with horn players Graham Haynes, Steve Lehman, and Mark Shim alongside rhythm partners Stephan Crump and Tyshawn Sorey. The music ranges from the thrillingly explosive (“Down to the Wire,” “Good on the Ground”) to the cathartically elegiac (“For Amiri Baraka,” “Threnody”), with melodic hooks, entrancing atmosphere, rhythmic muscle, and an alluring elemental spirit.
