Vijay Iyer 2

I am adding 'Kinship' to my playlist, from Iyer's 2003 album, Blood Sutra.  The lineup includes 
  • Rudresh Mahanthappa on alto sax, 
  • Stephen Crump on bass, and 
  • Tyshawn Storey on drums. 
I had been playing a cut from Mahanthappa's album, Apex, called 'Summit'.  I have replaced it with 'Rainier and Theresia', a much more compelling and delicious number.  

I have just listened to another cut from Blood Sutra, and it is so bloody good.  'Because of guns/Hey Joe Redux'.  Avant garde does blues across the spectrum of the heart.  This one had me jumpin' in the kitchen.
