Fred Hersch, piano
“Solo Hersch is a complete, self-sufficient, uniquely pure art form” (Jazz Times). As he amply demonstrates in recent releases including Alone at the Vanguard and Fred Hersch—SOLO, Hersch is “a pianist of unfailing imagination, who plays with a coherence of touch and conception…full of sparking images and an unimpeded sense of expression” (Audiophile Audition). Winner of a prestigious 2016 Doris Duke Charitable Foundation grant, Fred Hersch is “a master who plays it his way… Mr. Hersch has honed a solo piano concept second to none in jazz” (The New York Times) with “an intensity of intelligence and emotional directness unparalleled among his peers” (The New Yorker).
“When it comes to the art of solo piano in jazz, there are currently two classes of performers: Fred Hersch and everybody else” (All About Jazz)
