Vijay Iyer Almost Here
Sunday, February 6 is Super Sunday! And by that, of course we mean
it's the day of the Vijay Iyer Trio concert in HSU's Fulkerson Recital
Hall. We understand there's also a football game of some sort that
day, but the game should be over by the time the Iyer Trio hits at 8
p.m. (If it's not, hey, that's what DVRs are for…)
The trio's most recent CD, "Historicity," was the consensus jazz album
of the year in 2009 and is up for a Grammy at next month's ceremony.
Iyer was also named 2010's "Jazz Musician of the Year" by the Jazz
Journalists Association. You can read more about Vijay and his
terrific band and check out videos and streaming audio at
Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for students and seniors and
can be purchased at the Works in Eureka, Peoples Records and Wildwood
Music in Arcata, online at http://www.redwoodjazzalliance.org/tickets.htm
and at the door.
The Vijay Iyer Trio will also present a free workshop the day after
the concert, Monday, February 7 at 10 a.m. in HSU's Studio Theater and
Iyer will present a piano workshop at 3 p.m. that day in the Studio
We'll see you on the 6th!
