Vijay Iyer‘s working trio with Marcus Gilmore and Stephan Crump is playing at New York’s Jazz Standard Thursday through Sunday, September 22-25.  They’ve just recorded a follow-up album to 2009’s Grammy-nominated Historicity; the new trio disc is slated for a March 2012 release on ACT Music.   At the Standard, the first two nights (Thurs-Fri, Sept 22-23) showcase the trio’s new and newly arranged music;  the second two nights (Sat-Sun, Sept 24-25), Vijay expands to a sextet, similar to the one that played at Castle Clinton a few months ago for the River to River Festival, with tenor saxophonist Mark Shim, altoist Steve Lehman, and cornet & flugelhorn player Graham Haynes.
