“The most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so” (Vanity Fair) and “a master who plays it his way” (New York Times), Fred Hersch has been a favorite of Jazz Standard audiences for years. Nominated for Best Jazz Album and Best Jazz Solo in the 2012 Grammy Awards, Fred returns to our stage for a special tenth anniversary program with some very special musical friends.
Rising-star trumpet Amrbose Akinmusire's Blue Note debut, When The Heart Emerges Glistening, was among the most acclaimed jazz recordings of 2011. Tonight he steps out from his working band for some intricate music-making with Fred Hersch.
