“impulsive, daring and bursting with creative energy.” – Jazz Times


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. He has been proclaimed “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade” by Vanity Fair, “an elegant force of musical invention” by the L.A. Times, and “a living legend” by The New Yorker.

A seventeen-time Grammy nominee as both jazz pianist and composer, Hersch has regularly garnered jazz’s most prestigious awards, including distinctions as a 2016 Doris Duke Artist, 2016 and 2018 Jazz Pianist of the Year from the Jazz Journalists Association, and the 2021 International Jazz Artist of the Year from Jazz Magazine (France). He has long set the standard for expressive interpretation and inventive creativity in a stunning variety of settings, whether through his exquisite solo performances, as the leader of one of jazz’s era-defining trios, or in eloquent dialogue with his deeply attuned duo partners.

With over fifty albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, Hersch consistently receives lavish critical praise and numerous international awards for each highly anticipated new release. His recording with his long-standing trio, 2018’s Live In Europe, documents one remarkable evening in Brussels and has been hailed as its best to date. The trio was named Best Jazz Group in the 2019 DownBeat Critics Poll. Stereophile says of his 2022 album with string quartet Breath By Breath “Fred Hersch has reached a level of eminence among jazz pianists that makes everything he does important… The album sounds measured, graceful, meticulously detailed, and melodic.”

Recommended for Fans of Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau, Keith Jarrett and Chick Corea.
