Jazz Standard, New York, NY
“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.
Sounding Point, Julian Lage’s Grammy–nominated 2009 CD, was hailed by Time Out New York as “a major find.” In this evening of duets with Fred Hersch, the gifted guitarist will show yet another side of his artistry.
