“There’s probably no frame wide enough to encompass the creative output of the pianist Vijay Iyer,” The New York Times observed. His Ph.D. in cognitive science from UC Berkeley is just the start. He’s been recognized as a bona fide “genius” by DownBeat magazine, the MacArthur fellowship, and Harvard University, and was named by GQ India as one of the 50 most influential Indians. The jazz pianist is also a prolific recording artist.
