This EARSHOT JAZZ FESTIVAL performance features the VIJAY IYER TRIO. Pianist Vijay Iyer, “the most daringly original jazz artist of this generation” (Chicago Tribune), recently became the first musician in 60 years to head five categories in a Down Beat critics poll. He joins bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore in “the great new jazz piano trio” (New York Times). Expressive trumpet innovator Cuong Vu, who has lit up the UW and local scenes since moving to Seattle a few years ago, appears with a new trio of drummer Ted Poor and in-demand NYC bassist Eric Revis (Branford Marsalis Quartet) to open the show.
Seattle’s annual Earshot Jazz Festival returns October 12th and continues through November 4th with more than 50 distinctive concert events in venues all around the city.
