Unashamedly gorgeous jazz

“luxurious, free-flowing, unashamedly gorgeous jazz” – The New York Times

Heralded by fellow pianists and critics alike, Fred Hersch is unmistakably one of the 21st century’s greatest jazz talents—“a pristine pianist with a poet’s soul” (The Boston Globe). When he arrived on the New York scene in the 1980s, playing alongside the likes of Joe Henderson and Art Farmer, Hersch quickly asserted himself as a true original. It’s a quality he continues to possess more than 30 years later as a trailblazing and eloquent composer and the standard-bearer of mainstream jazz piano. On the heels of two 2018 Grammy nominations and the release of his provocative memoir, Good Things Happen Slowly, Hersch makes an exciting one-night-only return to the Festival.
