Six-time Grammy-nominated jazz pianist, bandleader and composer Fred Hersch comes to town with his acclaimed trio, featuring John Hébert on bass and Eric McPherson on drums. Hersch has recovered from a six-month coma he suffered in 2008, and is back to making music with his trio, including releasing a widely acclaimed 2-disc collection, Alive at the Vanguard
. Hersch was actually the first artist in the 75-year history of New York's legendary Village Vanguard to play week-long engagements as a solo pianist, and he's been praised by The New York Times Magazine
as "singular among the trailblazers of their art, a largely unsung innovator of this borderless, individualistic jazz -- a jazz for the 21st century."
