Your Life Flashes is the debut album by Fieldwork, a collective trio consisting of Aaron Stewart on tenor saxophone, Vijay Iyer on piano, and Elliot Humberto Kavee on drums, which was recorded in 2002 and released on Pi Recordings.
Fieldwork: Your Life Flashes by Dan McClenaghan, published on November 19, 2002. But the label also looks to jazz's future with Your Life Flashes by Fieldwork, a collective trio of inspired and vibrant young jazz men. The group's leader (unofficial, perhaps, but he wrote ten of the twelve tunes) is pianist Vijay Iyer, who sounds like a man possessed here. He's from the percussive school of piano.
Fieldwork are a trio comprising Elliot Humberto Kavee on drums, Aaron Stewart on tenor and Vijay Iyer on piano. The absence of a bass creates a particular tension, the lack of traditional resolution throws the three instruments into particular relief. Rhythm is mutable; it seems to speed up and slow down at will.

Fieldwork : Your Life Flashes is a world fusion music album recording by VIJAY IYER released in 2002 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette.
Your Life Flashes is the debut album by Fieldwork, a collective trio consisting of Aaron Stewart on tenor saxophone, Vijay Iyer on piano, and Elliot Humberto Kavee on drums, which was recorded in 2002 and released on Pi Recordings. What sets Fieldwork apart, however, is the trio’s fervent and unwavering embrace of rhythm and attack. All compositions by Vijay Iyer except where noted.
Your Life Flashes is a powerful response to European accusations of stagnation in America’s creative music; it is emotional, challenging, experimental, edgy, hard-hitting, and intense. The music comes in cascades and torrents, demanding the listener’s undivided attention. As much as the group is inspired by the three players’ involvement with luminaries who have dominated creative jazz during the past four decades, it is also inspired by improvisational and rhythmic traditions from around the world as well as by contemporary urban dance grooves. Fieldwork is a collective trio comprising three.
