Win FREE Tickets to Vijay Iyer & Craig Taborn @ EMPAC

October 25th, 2016, 1:30 pm by Greg

Albany native Vijay Iyer and Craig Taborn team up for an evening of adventurous jazz piano duets at EMPAC at RPI in Troy at 8pm on Saturday (October 29).

Both pianists have each risen to prominence within the jazz scene by expanding the boundaries of the genre and establishing a highly personalized approach to improvisation. Together, the two will draw on an evolving sketchbook of compositional ideas, developed through earlier iterations of the project, to continue a musical conversation that defies the notion of completion.
