Jazz for the 21st Century

A jazz master in absolute command of his artistry... at 62 Fred Hersch’s love of the music remains undiminished, His playing as rousing and riveting as ever. His style strengthens progressively as he follows his muse to lead jazz in new directions, employing high lyricism and high danger.” New Yorker

“If you have never heard Messrs. Hersch, Hébert and McPherson live or on CD, wait no longer – this is glorious music and deserves your attention! Listening through nine-years-plus of recordings with this brilliant trio, it becomes evident that they bring their ‘A’ game every time!!!Wall Street Journal

“In the pantheon of piano jazz there are currently two classes of performers: Fred Hersch and everybody else— or to echo the famous remark Miles Davis made about Bill Evans... Fred Hersch plays the piano the way it ought to be played.” All About Jazz

“Recently Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette have been commended for bringing the piano/bass/drum combo to an apotheosis. As one of the major ensembles of our times, Fred Hersch, John Hébert and Eric McPherson merit this same level of praise.” DownBeat

Fred Hersch’s canon is all-encompasing and his style completely his own, with that rare ‘one note and you know’ personal touch. Hersch is the Teleost of modern jazz piano!” – George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly
