At the forefront of jazz music for more than three decades, jazz pianist and composer Fred Hersch has earned countless awards and accolades including ten Grammy nominations, numerous acknowledgments from the jazz world’s most prestigious institutions and publications, and such recent distinctions as being named a 2016 Doris Duke Artist and the Jazz Journalists Association’s 2016 Jazz Pianist of the Year.
A select member of jazz’s piano pantheon, Fred Hersch is a pervasively influential creative force who has shaped the music’s course over more than three decades as an improviser, composer, educator, bandleader, collaborator and recording artist. He has been proclaimed “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade” by Vanity Fair, “an elegant force of musical invention” by The L.A. Times, and “a living legend” by The New Yorker.
With more than three-dozen albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, he is bringing the Fred Hersch Pocket Orchestra to Tennessee. We encourage you to purchase your tickets now because this will be an evening that you want to be in attendance for!
At Appling Lakes Apartments in Cordova, Tennessee, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun during this premier event!
