Format: Audio CD
It's almost impossible not to consider "Accelerando" ( by pianist Vijay Iyer's working trio with bassist Stephen Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore a companion to 2009's excellent "Historicity".
Its obvious similarities are that it places a handful of originals alongside a host of cover versions. These come from well-known artists from the worlds of jazz, 21st century dance music, and R&B.
But there are key differences, too: for starters, this trio has been together longer; nowhere does that matter more than it does in jazz.
The intuitive interplay and collective mindset that this trio possesses are exponentially more mature than they were on "Historicity", despite its sharpness and musical acumen. The willingness to take chances is greater, as is the ability to make those risks pay off.
Take the reading of "Human Nature", a tune recorded by Michael Jackson for the iconic "Thriller". The melody is irresistible and Iyer maintains its framework while he builds on it by syncopating, extrapolating, and coloring it so that it becomes rich with complexity and textures, all the while keeping its melodic integrity. The rhythmic pulse is doubled on the snare, hi-hat, and bass drum. Crump's bass accompanies rather than propels, so his bass is where the groove lies. Heatwave's "The Star of a Story" is likewise melodically intact, but its rhythmic basics are set on a groove that finds funk in waltz time. Iyer discovers subtleties and hidden harmonic corners in his middle register that are remarkable to anyone familiar with the tune.
