Vijay Iyer Trio


The pianist’s Accelerando topped this year’s Rhapsody Jazz Critics Poll. Like 2009’s Historicity, it’s another fine blend of jazz history (Herbie Nichols’s “Wildflower,” Duke Ellington’s “The Village of the Virgins”), pop (Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature”), solid originals, and Other (Flying Lotus and Thundercat’s “mmmhmmm”), all played with drive and finesse by Iyer, Stephan Crump (bass), and Marcus Gilmore (drums).
