  • Fred Hersch, called by Downbeat "one of the small handful of brilliant musicians of his generation," delivers a performance of great feeling, lively wit and infectious good humor on this live recording from Boston's Jordan Hall, captured on October 13, 1998. In the process, Hersch takes Irving Berlin's advice, as urged by the album title, in what he acknowledges to be one of the best concerts of his career.

  • With Thelonious: Fred Hersch Plays Monk, the noted pianist, composer, and arranger Fred Hersch examines works by one of the jazz world’s most legendary keyboard innovators, Thelonious Monk, with a dozen tunes by the enigmatic genius. The conservatory-trained Hersch brings a wealth of insight and experience to the material, shedding new light on Monk’s legacy.

  • “Elegantly arranged for jazz trio and strings," said the New York Times, Hersch's tribute to composer Billy Strayhorn "exudes an exotic hothouse aroma.” Jazziz called Hersch's renditions of Strayhorn's songs "stunning in their understated wealth and wry, bittersweet wit, as were the originals.” The Cincinnati Inquirer added: “Like Mr. Strayhorn’s compositions, Mr. Hersch’s execution transcends jazz. This is simply beautiful music.”
