iTunes Review

From Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, and Ahmad Jamal to Keith Jarrett, Marcus Roberts, and Brad Mehldau, pianists and their working trios have been among the most beloved groups in jazz. Founded in 2003, Vijay Iyer’s band with bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore has rapidly ascended toward a similar status with critics and grassroots fans alike. On Accelerando, the threesome’s second album, one hears comrades ready to explore shifts in tempo and time signatures together, while pushing the expressive potential of their own instruments. An examination of rhythm through popular songs, lesser-known compositions, and Iyer’s own pieces, it’s evenly split (including the iTunes bonus track) between sharp originals and bold interpretations. “Human Nature” starts off sounding faithful to the Michael Jackson version before delving into sublime feats of syncopation. Flying Lotus’ “Mmmhmm” is given a delicate reworking, while Iyer’s title track first rhythmically hesitates then explodes.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful, Complex, and Rewarding

Accelerando is fantastic, even better than Historicity in my opinion. The dialogue between the musicians is constantly engaging. The covers are brilliant, especially the new trio version of Human Nature, which balances power and delicacy, and Little Pocket Size Demons. The originals are also superb.

So freakin' good!

Just get it! I have not heard a new jazz album with this much depth in years!

A wonderful album

I managed to see these guys play at Birdland in NYC and they were great. So in sync and so passionate about their music. This is one of my all time favourite jazz albums. Buy it!
