Far From Over

Far From Over by Vijay Iyer Sextet.

Vijay Iyer augments his working trio of Stephen Crump (bass) and Tyshawn Sorey (drums) with 3 more players. Graham Haynes on Trumpet, Flugelhorn, and Electronics, Steve Lehman on Alto Sax, and Mark Shim on Tenor Sax.

The additional horns, the outstanding playing, and interesting arrangements, make this my favorite release from Iyer, yet.

Pieces flow organically from Bebop, to Headhunters-esque funk, to classical inspired atmospherics.

Very nice!
