Pianist Vijay Iyer's fifth album for ECM, 2017's fiery sextet date Far from Over, follows his superb 2016 collaboration with trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, A Cosmic Rhythm with Each Stroke. Where that album found Iyer and Smith engaged in a deeply interconnected series of often abstract chamber improvisations, here we find him exploding outward, but with no less interconnectedness between him and his bandmates. Joining Iyer is his adept sextet featuring cornetist Graham Haynes, alto saxophonist Steve Lehman, tenor saxophonist Mark Shim, bassist Stephan Crump, and drummer Tyshawn Sorey.
Far from Over is a studio album by American jazz musician Vijay Iyer. It was released in August 2017 under ECM Records. Far from Over was generally well-regarded by professional music critics upon release.
Listeners are often introduced to Vijay Iyer through his acoustic jazz trio, a powerful and innovative group that can cover pop artists and progressive jazz icons with equal aplomb. But since the pianist rarely tills the same ground two releases in a row, new fans are soon invited to grapple with wider-reaching projects like Iyer’s string quartet writing, an oratorio about veterans of color from recent American wars, or swinging ensembles that incorporate elements of Indian classical music Iyer’s duo album with veteran trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, released on ECM in 2016, had that grandly unified feel. But Iyer’s compositional range here is even more notable than this latest permutation of personnel.

The debut recording from the Vijay Iyer Sextet is 'Far From Over. Iyer’s compositions are both dazzlingly complex and furiously funky. On Down to the Wire, following a scorching Shim solo, the horns snap into turbo-bebop mode, whipping through a knotty line at a breathtaking pace, while on Good on the Ground, the band weaves in and out of Sorey’s pounding polyrhythmic march.

Vijay Iyer's energized sequence of ECM releases has garnered copious international praise. Yet his fifth for the label since 2014 – Far From Over, featuring his dynamically commanding sextet and released on CD and vinyl – finds Iyer reaching a new peak. a wealth of jazz history even as it pushes boldly forward. The music ranges from the thrillingly explosive ("Down to the Wire," "Good on the Ground") to the cathartically elegiac ("For Amiri Baraka," "Threnody"), with melodic hooks, entrancing atmosphere, rhythmic muscle and an elemental spirit all part of the allure. This group has a lot of fire in it, but also a lot of earth, because the tones are so deep, the timbres and textures," Iyer says. There's also air and water – the music moves.
