Vijay Iyer Sextet, In Concert

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

Merced College Theatre

3600 M Street, Merced, CA

Arts UC Merced Presents is thrilled to welcome the Vijay Iyer Sextet to Merced for a free concert on Saturday, April 28th at the Merced College Theatre (3600 M St., Merced, CA). Iyer is a Grammy-nominated composer-pianist described by Pitchfork as "one of the most interesting and vital young pianists in jazz today." The L.A. Times praised the Sextet's recent album Far From Over as "rambunctious" and "furiously funky." Rolling Stone named Far From Over one of its 50 Best Albums of 2017, writing that "Iyer...brings together a dream team of cutting-edge improvisers and turns them loose on a set of new pieces that combine proggy intricacy, elegant drama and breakneck rhythmic thrust"; it was the only jazz album to appear on their list. Iyer is the Franklin D. and Florence Rosenblatt Professor of the Arts in the Department of Music at Harvard University.
