Description

Description

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 and released on CD and vinyl - finds Iyer reaching a new peak. Furthering an artistry that led The Guardian to call Iyer “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 this 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.”
