Fred Hersch, the New York piano genius, and the German WDR Big Band conducted by Vince Mendoza, are bound to set off intriguing fireworks. Jason Moran calls Hersch the LeBron James of the piano world, while others label him as a member of the pantheon of the jazz piano. However you want to label him, Fred Hersch trained a whole new generation of jazz musicians, and he has long determined the creative lead of jazz in various settings – from his breathtaking solo concerts and exploratory duos to his special trios and innovative chamber settings.
