Composer-pianist Vijay Iyer has carved out a unique path as an influential, prolific, shape-shifting presence in modern music. Iyer has been voted DownBeat’s Artist of the Year four times and Artist of the Year in Jazz Times‘ Critics’ and Readers’ Polls for 2017. Iyer’s ECM sextet album Far From Over was ranked #1 in NPR’s annual Jazz Critics’ Poll. It was named among the best jazz albums of the year in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Slate and The New York Times, and the only jazz release in Rolling Stone’s list of the 50 best records of 2017.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
