Pick of the Week: Vijay Iyer Trio (4/4)

Pianist Vijay Iyer and his trio play the Dionysus Club on the campus of Oberlin College Thursday at 10 p.m. This is one of the strongest units performing in jazz today. They got my vote for 2012 Group of the Year in various polls, and their fourth album, Accelerando (ACT), with its charging mix of melody and jagged rhythms, was easily one of last year’s best records. Tickets to the show are $15.
