Join Vijay Iyer and Graham Haynes for an evening of listening and conversation about direct and circuitous routes of artistic influence. They’ll play tracks central to their collaborative history, and to the development of Graham’s musical curiosity, including gems from his upbringing in Queens among jazz legends, later immersions in New York City’s drum ‘n’ bass and hip hop communities, and travels to Paris, London, Morocco, and Brazil.

Described by The New York Times as a “social conscience, multimedia collaborator, system builder, rhapsodist, historical thinker and multicultural gateway,” Vijay is a prolific, shape-shifting composer and pianist who has created an innovative, resonant body of work over the last twenty-five years, earning him a place as one of the leading music-makers of his generation.

Graham Haynes, the Bahia, Brazil-based composer, bandleader, and musician, expands and confounds what we understand as jazz and electronic music. Son of the drummer Roy Haynes, raised among the greatest figures in improvised music and art in New York, Graham’s work grows out of a keen sense of New York’s many histories of music and musical movements. His is a voyage of constant departure and return to his native city, enriched by lifelong immersion in global musical practices and emerging sonic forms.

This event is part of Graham's residency at FourOneOne. The project, over the course of four weeks in March and April, spans performances, master classes, listening parties, and conversation with Robin D. G. Kelley; Adam Rudolph and Maalem Hassan Hakmoun; Vijay Iyer; Nublu Orchestra; Shakoor Hakeem and Lucie Vítková; Momenta Quartet, and others. More info.
