Description

About the Artist

A smart, lyrical pianist and composer with a distinctive sound and an unassuming manner, five-time Grammy nominee Fred Hersch is one of the most important jazz musicians of his generation” (Miami Herald).

Fred Hersch “stands among jazz’s first rank of pianists, yet promotes no particular style. He plays it his way: with a light touch and a focus on melody one moment; swinging freely the next as he inverts harmonies or deconstructs forms; tender, then tough, then yet more tender, always shaping the sound of his piano or his band into something personal” (The Wall Street Journal).

“One of the most sensitive and genuinely lyrical players in jazz” (The Atlantic Monthly), Fred Hersch is “a pristine pianist with a poet’s soul – a pair of qualities that combine to especially dazzling effect” (The Boston Globe).
