Vijay Iyer Sextet @ Jazz Standard

I had seen Vijay’s trio just a few weeks before this gig at Jazz Standard at the Detroit Jazz Fest, and was curious to see what he was going to to with this sextet formation w/Mark Shim (tenor saxophone), Steve Lehman (alto saxophone) and Graham Haynes (trumpet/flugelhorn) – in addition to his usual rhythm section of Stephan Crump (bass) and Marcus Gilmore (drums). The result was nothing short of thrilling! Right from the first note my attention was rapt to each peak and valley over the course of the set. Congrats to Vijay for creating such a dynamic vehicle for this special group.
