On March 13th jazz pianist Vijay Iyer will release Accelerando (ACT Music), a *spoiler alert* stunning record for which Iyer reconvened bassist Stephan Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore. The LP will be the trio’s first release since the highly praised Historicity, from 2009, and feature re-works of a mixed bag of ivory ticklers—Duke Ellington, Herbie Nichols, and, yes, Flying Lotus.
