Fred Hersch's piano "perfection" this Saturday
Franklin Abbott has posted an insightful Q&A exchange with the phenomenal jazz pianist FRED HERSCH on the Project Q Atlanta website....very much worth reading (thank you, Franklin and Fred).
And here's a YouTube video from earlier in Fred's career -- hearing this first track on his 1999 Nonesuch Let Yourself Go CD is what turned me on to his music-making. As amply demonstrated in his recent solo and ensemble work, his artistic accomplishments since that time are immensely innovative and gratifying -- and yet, this is one of those recorded performances that I keep coming back to (a "first love" sorta thing), and listen to several times a year (generally late at night) when I'm in the mood for music that really matters to me.
Fred Hersch makes a welcome return to Spivey Hall this Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 7:30 PM. Choose your preferred seat via Spivey Hall's website (per-ticket fee applies) or call the Box Office (for no-fee personalized service) at (678) 466-4200, Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM.
If you love piano, and if you love jazz and/or want to learn more about it, come hear Fred play on a superior piano in the superb acoustics of Spivey Hall, and be amazed.
