Fred Hersch Trio w/ Joe Lovano
Beautiful pairing. The pianist’s working band is refreshingly limber, allowing for the kind of instantaneous whimsy that keeps the music perpetually crackling. Balance that with Hersch’s natural romanticism and you’ve got a group that can gives lyricism its due while stretching in all sorts of ways. Hmm…doesn’t that sound like the M.O. of saxophonist Lovano, a man who’s found several ways to make a blustery squall wear its heart on its sleeve? Get those tickets early.
