Jazz Break: Vijay Iyer Trio

An historian is also a writer and given the rigors of the daily grind, personal commitments, and other distractions it can often be difficult to clear the mind to write. For me, I am most productive when I am in a cafe with music in my ear. It is not so simple however – it can’t be just any sort of music…it has to be good of course, but able to set an intellectual scene in my mind. So ballads won’t work, polyphonic rhythmic melodies also won’t work(lest I begin to dance in public and forego writing altogether)…Jazz often creates my intellectual scene. Vijay Iyer’s music is amazing.
