    Although the new album from Vijay Iyer Trio - "Accelerando" largely is an avant-garde, compositions present very specific instrumental parts thank to whom art pieces are easily memorable. Worth mentioning are at least conductive parts of drums in "The Star Of A Story" or heavily accented bridges in the "Mmmhmm".

    As its title suggests, Accelerando provides plenty of speed and also a very real adrenaline rush.

    Interspersed in between the renditions throughout the course of Accelerando... are five outstanding Iyer-penned performances.

    From the first shudder of the keyboard and crack of drums to that last, celebratory walk through the village of the virgins, Iyer, Crump and Gilmore keep things spellbinding.
