“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.
One of the most daring and soulful of contemporary jazz singers, Rene Marie can make “time fly by as if it were an instant, with sizzling grooves…and shimmering, sliding vocal work.” (Roanoke Times) A vocalist of her gifts could ask for no more sympathetic an accompanist than Fred Hersch.
