"A pianist, composer and conceptualist of rare imaginative power." — The New York Times


An artist of unbounded imagination and skill, six-time Grammy Award nominee Fred Hersch is highly acclaimed in jazz, classical and Broadway settings. Indeed, he was voted 2011 Jazz Pianist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association. Hersch is a prolific recording artist with over 35 albums as a leader. While many of these are solo piano dates, he is best known for his spectacular piano trios. Also noted as a sympathetic sideman, Hersch has collaborated with an astonishing range of jazz legends including Joe Henderson, Stan Getz, Art Farmer, Bill Frisell, Charlie Haden, Kurt Elling and others. He produced the 2010 theatrical project, My Coma Dreams, based on dreams he retained after emerging from a 2-month coma in 2008. A passionate spokesman for AIDS services since 1993, Hersch has performed in numerous benefit concerts and recordings raising over $250,000 to date.
