The award is another milestone in the ongoing public recognition of Vijay Iyer’s ACT debut album, released in fall 2009. “Historicity”, a classic piano-trio set of surprising covers and originals rendered in his signature approach, became one of the most acclaimed jazz albums of the decade. It was also chosen as the #1 Jazz Album of the Year by The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Metro Times, National Public Radio, PopMatters.com, and the Village Voice Jazz Critics Poll. The Vijay Iyer Trio has been named "best international ensemble" in the ECHO Jazz Awards, the German equivalent of the Grammys,
Vijay's newest recording, titled Solo, will be released at the end of August. It is his first solo piano album.
