FRED HERSCH TRIO

Event Date: 
Thursday, February 28, 2013 - 8:00pm

Fred Hersh was the first artist in the 75-year history of New York's legendary Village Vanguard to play week-long engagements as a solo pianist - his second featured run is documented on the 2011 release, Alone at the Vanguard. This CD was nominated for two 2012 Grammy Awards: for Best Jazz Instrumental Album and for Best Jazz Improvised Solo (for his interpretation of Monk's "Work'). Alone won the "Coup de Coeur" de l'Académie Charles Cros in France and 2011 also saw Hersch place 4th in the Downbeat Critic's Poll.

His newest trio CD Whirl found its way onto numerous 2010 best-recordings-of-the-year lists; and as the impetus behind the ambitious 2011 production, “My Coma Dreams,” a full-evening work for 11 instruments, actor/singer and animation/multimedia -- Hersch has fully lived up to the approbation of the New York Times who, in a featured Sunday Magazine article, praised him as “singular among the trailblazers of their art, a largely unsung innovator of this borderless, individualistic jazz – a jazz for the 21st century.”azz pianist | composer; 5-time Grammy nominee.
