• Vijay Iyer Trio: Historicity

Historicity (ACT), the ruggedly inventive yet historically plugged-in album by the Vijay Iyer Trio, tops this year’s Village Voice Jazz Critics’ Poll. As poll marshal and writer Francis Davis writes in this week’s Voice, this year’s results shift away from the veterans who usually dominate the survey and toward younger players. You can find the top 50 albums along with winners in several subcategories (reissue, Latin jazz, debut album, and vocal) here.
