One of the leading music makers of his generation, composer/pianist Vijay Iyer returns to Miller Theatre with his acclaimed trio featuring the spellbinding bassist Linda May Han Oh and the formidable musician Tyshawn Sorey on drums. Considered “the great new jazz piano trio” (The New York Times), the ensemble makes emotionally resonant music that is rooted in tradition yet truly innovative. Miller Theatre, under the direction of Melissa Smey, has long championed Vijay Iyer, and has featured him as the subject of a Composer Portrait, in Miller’s celebrated Mission: Commission podcast, and on the Jazz series.
