Vijay Iyer has risen to the top of his generation in contemporary jazz. He's won every prestigious award in music including receiving The MacArthur genius grant. After recording many of his early projects at OTR Studios we were thrilled when he returned to record this solo piano album that includes cover songs by Thelonius Monk and Duke Ellington. Our favorite is the lead track with its haunting opening melodies - _Human Nature_ - a song originally performed by Michael Jackson. Recorded by Cookie Marenco at OTR Studios to DSD. Vijay was named 2010 MUSICIAN OF THE YEAR in the Jazz Journalists Association Annual Jazz Awards!
Vijay's Solo is his first solo piano album. Like Historicity, the Solo album cover features a sculpture by the contemporary artist Anish Kapoor.
