Fred Hersch Trio to inaugurate 9' Steinway at Vermont Jazz Center
The Vermont Jazz Center is proud to welcome the legendary pianist Fred Hersch to its Cotton Mill venue, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, #222, Brattleboro, on Saturday, March 12 at 8 p.m. He will be performing with his working trio of Jon Hébert (bass) and Eric McPherson (drums). Hersch is one of the leading jazz pianists in the world. Through his commitment to originality, embrace of romanticism, mastery of the bebop language and chameleon-like ability to blend genres Hersch has carved out a unique niche that is - as Ellington would have said – "beyond category."
Tickets for the Fred Hersch Quartet are $20+ general admission, $15 for students with I.D. (contact VJC about educational discounts); available at In the Moment in Brattleboro, or online at www.vtjazz.org, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
