Hailed by the New York Times as 'a pianist, composer and conceptualist of rare imaginative power', Fred Hersch makes a rare London appearance in this solo performance.
Hersch is among the most prolific and widely praised solo jazz pianists of his generation.
Since working as sideman to jazz legends Joe Henderson, Art Farmer and Stan Getz in the 1970s, Hersch has collaborated with some of the finest musicians on today's scene, including Bill Frisell, Charlie Haden, Renée Fleming and Norma Winstone.
He has crafted a signature approach to the standard jazz repertoire, investing time-tested classics with keen insight, fresh ideas and extraordinary technique.
