Set 1: VIJAY IEYR Trio
Set 2: ROBERTO GATTO Quartet
Ticket included Roberto Gatto performance

Already a guest of Bergamo Jazz in 2015 with his previous trio (with Stephan Crump on double bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums), Vijay Iyer is even more so one of the preeminent figures of contemporary jazz, both from an instrumental, compositional and design point of view. At his side are bassist Linda Oh (already heard several times in Bergamo with Dave Douglas, Pat Metheny and as a leader) and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, not mere accompanists but equally responsible for the remarkable musical results of the trio. With them, Vijay Iyer recorded Uneasy in 2019, which was released in 2021 by ECM, a record from which the leader’s poetics and his ability to combine expressive rigour and communication and convey the language of jazz in a personal way fully emerges. The originality of his musical approach has in fact earned Vijay Iyer numerous awards around the world and in Italy
