Vijay Iyer Mystic Brew

As a possible reply to Blimpy’s recent Polar Bear post, here are cover versions of Ronnie Foster’s Mystic Brew and M.I.A.’s Galang by Vijay Iyer’s piano trio from their new album, Historicity. I wouldn’t necessarily call it post jazz, but it’s certainly exploring new ground, and I like it a lot.I also like the way Vijay apparently first heard the Ronnie Foster track as a sample in ATCQ’s Electric Relaxation.
