Trio 3 & Vijay Iyer: Wiring

Trio 3 relives the free jazz of late Coltrane and Albert Ayler. This is their fourth album – each one brings a new pianist – now it’s Vijay Iyer‘s turn to share their free spirit.

Saxophonist Oliver Lake (World Saxophone Quartet), bassist Reggie Workman (John Coltrane) and drummer Andrew Cyrille (Cecil Taylor) don’t need reinforcement from anyone. But each different pianist creates a new subtlety and power, and Iyer’s presence brings intelectuallity and tradition.
