Vijay Iyer, Linda May Han Oh & Tyshawn Sorey - Uneasy [CD]
Cat. no: 3520696
Release Date: 9th April 2021
Vijay Iyer presents a powerful new trio, in which he is joined by two key figures in creative music, Tyshawn Sorey and Linda May Han Oh.
“We have an energy together that is very distinct. It has a different kind of propulsion, a different impulse and a different spectrum of colours”.
Repertoire on ‘Uneasy’, recorded at Oktaven Audio Studio in Mount Vernon, New York in December 2019, includes Iyer originals written over a span of 20 years, plus Gerri Allen’s “Drummer’s Song” and a radical recasting of Cole Porter’s “Night and Day.”
