Hear the Delaware WINF-LP broadcast clearly from the eastside of
Columbus at Taylor Station Rd and I-270. Can anyone explain how

Saturday, May 20, 2017
7pm & 9pm

“Iyer is the most celebrated pianist in jazz—he may be the most celebrated musician in
jazz right now—and that gives him great creative license…Like the greatest pianists in jazz history—Bud Powell, Art Tatum, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans—Iyer could never be mistaken
for anyone else.”—JazzTimes

Every time acclaimed jazz pianist Vijay Iyer has come to the Wex, he’s brought a unique
band exploring fresh dimensions in his wide-ranging musical interests. Now with this sextet, DownBeat’s artist of the year offers a broad sonic palette that provides new color and tonal complexity to support his exploratory compositions.

  And what a band! You’ll hear
  trumpeter Graham Haynes, whose
  work with the Steve Coleman–led
  M-Base Collective inspired Iyer,
  and Mark Shim on tenor sax
  alongside Steve Lehman on alto,
  Stephan Crump on bass, and
  Justin Brown on drums. Together
  they’ll preview material from the
  sextet’s forthcoming album for
  ECM Records right before they
  head into the studio to record it a
  few days later. Get your tickets
  now, and be among the first to
  hear Iyer’s latest music when this
  sextet lights up the best room for
  jazz in town—a major highlight of
  our jazz season.
