JPEC Presents: Fred Hirsch Trio

Saturday, April 16

6811eddc-9aab-4c7a-9054-b648ed8c1aa7

Fred Hersch has performed with his favourite trio , bassist John Hebert and drummer Eric McPherson since 2009. Praised in a New York Times Sunday Magazine feature as “singular among the trailblazers of their art, a largely unsung innovator of this borderless, individualistic jazz—a jazz for the 21st century,” he balances his internationally recognized instrumental and composing skills with significant achievements as a bandleader, collaborator and theatrical conceptualist.

Hersch’s influence has been widely felt on a new generation of jazz pianists, from former students Brad Mehldau and Ethan Iverson to his colleague Jason Moran, who has said “Fred at the piano is like LeBron James on the basketball court. He´s perfection!”
