Get in a New York state of mind with cool jazz stylings by the NY-based pianist Fred Hersch. Fred will perform a concert at Ruth Taylor Recital Hall on Trinity University campus.
A select member of jazz’s piano pantheon, Fred Hersch is a pervasively influential creative force who has shaped the music’s course over more than three decades as an improviser, composer, educator, bandleader, collaborator and recording artist. A twelve-time Grammy Award nominee, he continues to earn jazz’s most prestigious awards, including recent distinctions as a 2016 Doris Duke Artist, 2016 Jazz Pianist of the Year from the Jazz Journalists Association and the 2017 Prix Honorem de Jazz from L’Acádemie Charles Cros for the totality of his career.
Proclaimed “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade” by Vanity Fair, Hersch has long defined jazz’s creative edge in a wide variety of settings, from his breathtaking solo recitals and exploratory duos to his extraordinary trios and innovative chamber settings. With some three-dozen albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, Hersch consistently wins an international array of awards and lavish critical praise for his albums.
Fred Hersch’s recent release, Sunday Night at the Vanguard (Palmetto), is a definitive statement by his long-running trio with bassist John Hébert and drummer Eric McPherson. It was nominated for two 2016 Grammy Awards, for Best Jazz Solo and Best Jazz Album.
Fred will entice audiences with beautiful jazz piano on Wednesday, September 19th at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase online. Seating assignments are granted on a first-come, first-served basis according to ticket time stamp.
