Fred Hersch Trio: Live In Europe

Read "Live In Europe" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Fred Hersch's 2009 recording, Whirl (Palmetto Records), was where pure magic first occurred in the pianist's extensive and consistently superb discography. That particular outing introduced his now long-standing trio with bassist John Hebert and drummer Eric McPherson. Alive At the Vanguard (2012), Floating (2014), and Sunday Night At The Vanguard (2016) by the group followed, all ...

Fred Hersch Trio: Sunday Night at the Vanguard

Read "Sunday Night at the Vanguard" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

"Questo è di gran lunga l'album migliore che ho realizzato in trio--dice Fred Hersch -e rappresenta al meglio il nostro modo di suonare."
Ogni musicista tende a pensare allo stesso modo e la frase ci lascia perplessi perchè non è facile superare album strepitosi come Floating (Palmetto, 2014) realizzato in studio e Alive at ...

New York, NY

While sitting in wait before a set at New York's Village Vanguard, the eyes are inevitably drawn to the various photos, posters, and odds and ends lining the walls--images and items that may seem random and incongruous to the ...

Fred Hersch Trio: Floating

Read "Floating" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Fred Hersch è ormai divenuto uno dei principali protagonisti del piano jazz contemporaneo. Per questo motivo ogni suo progetto ingenera molte aspettative da parte di pubblico e critica. Floating non sembra essere all'altezza delle magistrali prove discografiche di cui il Nostro si era reso protagonista in passato. A scanso di equivoci, il suo pianismo si sprigiona ...

Fred Hersch Trio: Floating

Read "Floating" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Live albums and studio albums can by miles or millimeters apart in terms of presentation, conception, quality, layout and reception; it all depends on the circumstances and intentions when a record is made. Pianist Fred Hersch's Floating, for example, nearly erases that potential divide.

While it's against his very nature, Hersch could've haphazardly ...

Fred Hersch Trio: Floating

Read "Floating" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

There's no arguing the considerable merits of pianist Fred Hersch's Alive at the Vanguard (Palmetto Records, 2012) or his Alone at the Vanguard (Palmetto Records, 2011), trio and solo efforts respectively, both recorded live at the legendary Village Vanguard, home of so many classic live sets. Hersch is at the height of his artistic powers in ...

Fred Hersch Trio: Alive at the Vanguard

Read "Alive at the Vanguard" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il piano-trio è una formazione classica, ampiamente usata (ed abusata) nella storia del jazz. Fred Hersch è tuttavia un pianista con le idee ben chiare su ciò che significa suonare in trio. Nella sua musica si trovano in perfetto equilibrio gusto per la melodia e paesaggi armonici variegati, interplay e arrangiamenti sofisticati, tocco cristallino e fraseggio impeccabile, tradizione jazzistica e ...

Fred Hersch Trio: Alive At The Vanguard

Read "Alive At The Vanguard" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Tradition is served well on this Fred Hersch Trio live recording from New York's Village Vanguard. The pianist's covers of the American songbook, like Cole Porter's “From This Moment On" and jazz classics such as Miles Davis' “Nardis" and Thelonious Monk's “Played Twice," animate and energize every moment of this club date.

Hersch, whose touring ...

Fred Hersch Trio: Alive At The Vanguard

Read "Alive At The Vanguard" reviewed by Larry Taylor

Pianist Fred Hersch's Alone at the Vanguard (Palmetto) was chosen by many as one of 2011's best, and rightfully so.

Now, following up that solo album, is Alive at the Vanguard, a double album which finds the pianist with his current trio. Playing together since 2010, Hersch has settled in comfortably with bassist John ...
