FRED HERSCH TRIO
Fred Hersch piano, John Hébert bas, Eric McPherson drums
Masterful New York trio led by pianist Fred Hersch, who strives for absolute beauty. ‘Luxurious, free-flowing, unashamedly gorgeous jazz’ (New York Times).
‘There’s nothing wrong with beauty’, says Fred Hersch, one of the most prominent jazz pianists today. Thanks to famous former students such as Brad Mehldau and Ethan Iverson (The Bad Plus) he has inspired a whole generation of pianists. Ever since the 1970s, when he started in New York in the bands of Lee Konitz and Art Farmer, he has strived for absolute beauty.
At the Bimhuis Fred Hersch will perform with his trio featuring masterful New York improvising musicians John Hébert on upright bass and Eric McPherson on drums. Their most recent album Sunday Night at the Vanguard was nominated for two Grammy Awards.
‘Hersch’s music – luxurious, free-flowing, unashamedly gorgeous jazz – is idiosyncratically, unmistakably a creation of his own’ (New York Times).
