Fred Hersch Duo & Trio


The poetic pianist is completely established, but he still flashes the moves of an up-and-coming adventurer, here taking the stage with an array of new colleagues for a series of duos and trio one-offs. Trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire will bring a nuanced bravado, guitarist Julian Lage offers a wealth of grace, and singer Rene Marie boasts a bedrock intimacy. As far as threesomes go, Hersch, Holland, and Hart is a pip.
