Reviews in Rolling Stone, NPR’s Fresh Air, NY Times, Pitchfork, LA Times, The Guardian…

“If you’re looking for the shape of jazz to come, here it is……the sturdiness of its design and the passion of its execution make [Far From Over] 2017’s jazz album to beat.” – Rolling Stone (Hank Shteamer) August 2017

“This is a band for the ages.” – San Diego Union Tribune (George Varga)June 2017 (re: Vijay Iyer Sextet)

“rambunctious, furiously funky…. (the sextet offers) the sort of head-bobbing drive and invention that has landed Iyer on multiple best-of lists over the years” – L.A. Times

“The 10-track, nearly hour-long album offers one of the bandleader’s strongest and most varied programs…The union of players and material inspires a new synthesis: the sound of Iyer consolidating strengths and discovering some new ones as he settles into the vibe created by his most potent band yet.” – Pitchfork (Seth Colter Walls) August 2017

“The new album from USA´s best jazz artist is a five-star masterpiece”. – Helsingin Sanomat (Harri Uusitorppa – Finland) September 2017

“Iyer, of course, knows the jazz canon (and several other canons) backward and forward, but with Far From Over he has planted himself within it even as he continues to expand the music’s boundaries…Like I said—it’s cookin’.” – PopMatters (Will Layman) August 2017

“Spine-tinlging jazz for heart, head and feet.” 5 Star review in The Guardian (John Fordham) August 2017

“Ultimately, it’s that balance of harmonically adventurous exploration and no-holds-barred blowing that make Far from Over nothing short of thrilling.” – All Music Guide (Matt Coller) August 2017
