It’s always an honor to welcome Fred Hersch back to Jazz Standard, but especially as part of our tenth anniversary celebration. Fred first appeared on our stage in September 2002 as part of a Verizon Music Festival solo piano convocation and returned many times in the ensuing decade. We congratulate Fred on earning two 2012 Grammy Award nominations for the solo CD Alone at the Vanguard – remarkably, his eighth solo piano recording – for Best Jazz Album; and the track “Work” (composed by Thelonious Monk), for Best Jazz Solo. Fred Hersch, wrote Steve Futterman in The New Yorker, “has developed an intensity of intelligence and emotional directness unparalleled among his peers.”
