     The School of Music presents the Second Annual Jazz Piano Concert featuring Fred Hersch.

    Proclaimed by Vanity Fair magazine, “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so,” Fred Hersch balances his internationally recognized instrumental skills with significant achievements as a composer, bandleader, and theatrical conceptualist, as well as remaining an in-demand collaborator with other noted bandleaders and vocalists.  He was the first artist in the 75-year history of New York's legendary Village Vanguard to play week-long engagements as a solo pianist. His second featured run is documented on the 2011 release, Alone at the Vanguard. This CD was nominated for two Grammy Awards: for Best Jazz Instrumental Album and for Best Jazz Improvised Solo. The concert is free and open to the public.
