Performance Santa Fe presents the Vijay Iyer Sextet, at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, Friday, May 20, 2022, 7:30 p.m. Jazz pianist and composer Vijay Iyer (pronounced VID-jay EYE-yer) has carved out a unique path as an influential, prolific, and shape-shifting presence in modern music. Iyer has been voted DownBeat Magazine’s Jazz Artist of the Year four times — 2018, 2016, 2015, and 2012 — and Jazz Times’ 2017 Artist of the Year. Additionally, Iyer was named a United States Artists Fellow in 2017, a MacArthur Fellow in 2013, and a Doris Duke Performing Artist in 2012. He also holds a lifetime appointment at Harvard University. Iyer’s sextet of virtuoso improvisers (DownBeat Magazine’s 2018 Jazz Group of the Year) leverage a wealth of jazz history with music ranging from the thrillingly explosive to the cathartically elegiac, with entrancing hooks, rhythmic muscle, and an elemental spirit all part of the allure.
