Vijay Iyer
A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke

Vijay Iyer - A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke

A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke features pianist Vijay Iyer and the musician he has described as his “hero, friend and teacher,” trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith. Vijay has previously played extensively with Wadada in Smith’s Golden Quartet, but this album, produced by Manfred Eicher and recorded at New York’s Avatar Studios last October, is the first documentation of their duo work. The centerpiece of the album is the spellbinding title suite, dedicated to Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990), the innovative Indian artist whose improvisatory imagery evokes abstracted rhythms.
