Special Fundraiser: Vijay Iyer's new album Accelerando
On Monday, May 21, join APF for a special two-hour fundraiser show featuring Vijay Iyer!
Autographed copies of Vijay Iyer Trio's Accelerando will go to the first 10 listeners who call in to pledge.
Pianist and composer Vijay Iyer has been hailed as one of the most innovative and visionary jazz musicians on the contemporary scene. His new trio album, "Accelerando," a visceral commentary on the physical reality of music, features both original compositions and interpretations of pieces by Duke Ellington, Henry Threadgill, and Michael Jackson. APF's Leyla Mei sat down recently with the Grammy-nominated artist for a wide-ranging conversation on Suzuki parenting, the meaning of perfection, and how musical collaboration can feel like hanging out with one's cousins. Tune in Monday to hear excerpts from the interview and songs from Accelerando.
Please call in to pledge to support APF & WBAI! For a pledge to support independent media, we'll be offering his new album Accelerando for $80 (the first 10 who pledge will get an autographed CD) and with a pledge of $85 we'll include a copy of the full-length interview conducted by APF's Leyla Mei. You can call the station at 212-209-2950 or visit wbai.org to pledge your support. We need *you* to help us broadcast progressive and leftist perspectives on Asia and Asian America, through voices that do not have an audience in the mainstream media.
