Fred Hersch – Sunday Night at the Vangaurd
In Sunday Night at the Vangaurd (Palmetto, 2016), pianist Fred Hersch finds himself mentioned alongside such greats as Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea and Henry Threadgill.
There’s a mindset that jazz is defined either by young artists creating something new, or veteran artists playing what they’ve played – the way they’ve played it – for decades. Hersch and the others defy that kind of thinking as they continue to create sounds that are fresh and invigorating.
Performing with Hersch are bassist John Hebert and drummer Eric McPherson.
