Teju Cole, “one of the most vibrant voices in contemporary writing” (Los Angeles Times), joins Vijay Iyer, “one of his generation’s brightest jazz luminaries” (Time Out New York), in a powerful new collaboration. Blind Spot combines Cole’s photography and spoken prose with Iyer’s “provocative and accessible, intellectually substantive and sensuously attractive” (Chicago Tribune) music in an investigation of humanity’s voluntary blindness to tragedy and injustice throughout history.
“The places [Teju Cole] can go, you feel, are just about limitless.” - The New York Times on Teju Cole
“No one in jazz sounds like Iyer.” - Chicago Tribune on Vijay Iyer
