O’s Notes: This SACD release features pianist Iyer in a quartet with Rudesh Mahanthappa (sax), Tyshawn Sorey (d) and Stephan Crump (b). They immerse themselves into their music examining what’s on their mind individually and then bringing it together as a group. Vijay and sax player Rudesh generally handle the melodies and dictate the pulse of each song. Take a serious listen to appreciate it.
