Fred Hersch Trio
Led by “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade,” (Vanity Fair) the Fred Hersch Trio is a jazz ensemble of major acclaim and talent. Now in its fifth incarnation since Hersch formed the trio in 1985, the group is rounded out by bassist John Hébert and drummer Eric McPherson. The group’s latest release, 2016’s Sunday Night at the Vanguard, showcases the trio’s electrifying playing and virtuosic command of their instruments and earned two Grammy nominations. Onstage, the musicians are just as ferociously talented as they are on record, playing with “high lyricism and high danger” (The New Yorker).
