Fred Hersch Trio

When: Fri., Jan. 25, 8 p.m. and Sat., Jan. 26, 9 p.m. 2013

There are several assets to mention in recommendation of the trio led by jazz pianist Fred Hersch, from his light and tender touch on the keys to the rich tone of bassist John Hébert. But for me, it's the wonderful rhythmic consideration of Hersch that's most exciting. He doesn't play melodies so much as he acts as a conduit for them, notes moving in streams of starts and stops, twisting around one another in one moment only to stretch like string the next. To hear Hersch play is to never know what's next, to be comforted by the chase. —Grayson Currin
