Composer Portrait: Fieldwork

Steve Lehman, saxophones

"A jazz power trio for the new century!" - NPR's Fresh Air on Fieldwork

As part two of our three part Composer Portrait: Fieldwork, Ars Nova Workshop invites you for a night of music with Vijay Iyer, Tyshawn Sorey and Steven Lehman in trio.

Fieldwork is a collective of three widely celebrated young composer-performers: pianist Vijay Iyer, saxophonist Steve Lehman, and drummer Tyshawn Sorey.  Fieldwork's music reflects each member's ties to the American jazz tradition, modern composition, African and South Asian musics, underground hip-hop and electronica, and the influential music of Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians.  Fieldwork's intensely collaborative rehearsal process resembles that of a rock band: they use group improvisation to develop and expand their intricate compositions into something larger than the sum of its parts. The result is a dense yet visceral musical world -- tightly unified ensemble playing, extroverted and high-impact, but with a mysterious inner logic.  Fieldwork's third album, Door, was released in spring 2008 on Pi Recordings to critical acclaim. Over the last 5 years, they have performed numerous US dates, and overseas in Italy, Portugal, Austria, France and Sweden.
