Thursday, January 17, 2019

A 14-time Grammy Award nominee, Fred Hersch is an artist of unbounded imagination. A powerful creative force, he has shaped the course of jazz for more than three decades as an improviser, composer and recording artist. Proclaimed “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade” by Vanity Fair, Hersch has long defined jazz’s creative edge in a wide variety of settings, from his breathtaking solo recitals and exploratory duos to his extraordinary trios and innovative chamber settings. With some three dozen albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, Hersch consistently wins an international array of awards and lavish critical praise.

The Fred Hersch Trio was nominated for a 2018 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album; and Fred Hersch was nominated for Best Improvised Jazz Solo.
