Henry Threadgill, Vijay Iyer, and Dafnis Prieto require very little introduction. These three composer/improvisers are at the forefront of creative music today, making music that is deeply rooted in many jazz traditions, yet truly boundless in its form.
We at The Jazz Gallery can’t think of a better way to continue our 20th Anniversary celebrations than inviting these three musicians to play together in our space. Though they haven’t performed extensively as a group, they share a deep commitment to experimentation and finding ways to create rich, large-scale structures on the fly. In addition, all three have forged close bonds with the Gallery for well over a decade. Mr. Threadgill first performed at the Gallery back in 2001 with his longtime band Zooid and has returned continually since them, making the Gallery one of his major homes for New York performances. Before Mssrs. Iyer and Prieto were winning MacArthur grants, they were part of the first class of Jazz Gallery Residency Commissions back in 2002 and have been regulars ever since.
