Jazz at the Maverick: Fred Hersch, piano, and Gilad Hekselman, guitar

2018 Grammy nominee returns by popular demand. A select member of jazz’s piano pantheon, Fred Hersch is a pervasively influential creative force who has shaped the music’s course over more than three decades as an improviser, composer, educator, bandleader, collaborator and recording artist. A twelve-time Grammy Award nominee, he continues to earn jazz’s most prestigious awards, including recent distinctions as a 2016 Doris Duke Artist, 2016 Jazz Pianist of the Year from the Jazz Journalists Association and the 2017 Prix Honorem de Jazz from L’Acádemie Charles Cros for the totality of his career.

Proclaimed “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade” by Vanity Fair, Hersch has long defined jazz’s creative edge in a wide variety of settings, from his breathtaking solo recitals and exploratory duos to his extraordinary trios and innovative chamber settings. With some three-dozen albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, Hersch consistently wins an international array of awards and lavish critical praise. 

“Fred at the piano is like LeBron James in the basketball court. He’s perfection!” – Jason Moran
