Break stuff by Vijay Iyer( Recording )

11 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neues Album des indisch-amerikanischen Pianisten. Vijay Iyer zählt seit einigen Jahren zu den vielbeachteten jüngeren Akteuren des Jazz. Der auch als Musiktheoretiker aktive Iyer spielt seit Jahren zusammen mit Stephan Crump und Marcus Gilmore, was sich in kreativer Souveränität niederschlägt. "Der Spagat zwischen verschiedenen Ansätzen und Einflüssen macht den Reiz dieses Albums aus. Zitate aus jazzfremden Genres wie Techno und Funk stehen hier neben Verbeugungen vor der Tradition mit Kompositionen von Thelonious Monk, Billy Strayhorn und John Coltrane. Vor allem aber überzeugt das traumhafte Zusammenspiel von Kontrabassist Stephan Crump und Schlagzeuger Marcus Gilmore mit dem Bandleader ... sicherlich eines der großen Piano-Jazz-Alben des Jahres 2015" (Bernhard Jugel,

Far from over by Vijay Iyer( Recording )

15 editions published in 2017 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keyboardist-composer Vijay Iyer's energized sequence of ECM releases has garnered copious international praise. Yet his fifth for the label since 2014 Far From Over, featuring his dynamically commanding sextet finds Iyer reaching a new peak, furthering an artistry that led The Guardian to call him one of the world's most inventive new-generation jazz pianists and The New Yorker to describe him as extravagantly gifted ... brilliantly eclectic. Far From Over features a sextet of virtuoso improvisers with horn players Graham Haynes, Steve Lehman and Mark Shim alongside rhythm partners Stephan Crump and Tyshawn Sorey leveraging a wealth of jazz history even as it pushes boldly forward. 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 elemental spirit all part of the allure. This group has a lot of fire in it, but also a lot of earth, because the tones are so deep, the timbres and textures, Iyer says. There's also air and water the music moves

"Ein äthiopischer Arzt kehrt 1990 in sein Heimatdorf zurück, wo noch die Erinnerungen an die Schrecken aus dem italienisch-äthiopischen Krieg präsent sind. Doch auch die Gegenwart des marxistischen Regimes entpuppt sich nicht als Verwirklichung jener Utopie, an die der Mediziner einst glaubte. Anhand der Erlebnisse und Erinnerungen eines körperlich wie geistig versehrten Intellektuellen entwirft der Film ein Mosaik der äthiopischen Geschichte im 20. Jahrhundert. [...]." []
