Always a pleasure to link with the virtuoso pianist, composer, educator and friend that is Vijay Iyer. Months before becoming prestigious a MacArthur fellow (read more) Iyer, Avant- Jazz Saxophonist/composer Matana Roberts and myself performed two sets at John Zorn’s Stone in the East Village. Though each set was strikingly different from one another, humbly, we went in ! Each set seemed too short. The dynamism and tirelessly expansive phrasing was a joy to behold. Definitely looking forward to doing it again !!
