Fred Hersch’s new Fred Hersch Trio record Whirl is the focus of the brilliant NPR “All Things Considered” segment that aired on June 22nd. Hersch and host Robert Siegel discussed the evolution of Hersch’s magnificent career, almost cut sort by a nearly fatal coma caused by the AIDS virus.
‘Whirl’ is the beginning of a triumphant comeback for Hersch. NPR calls the outstanding record “unflinching…it demonstrates that his musical gifts were merely interrupted…with Whirl, Hersch can build on his firmly established style and versatility.”
Vanity Fair calls Hersch "the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so. And his new, comeback album, Whirl, is a testament to Hersch’s deep reserves of talent and resolve."
At turns beautiful and fiercely poignant; Whirl reflects Hersch's unflappable focus and dedication to his art. The album features new compositions by Hersch and fresh takes on songs such as A.E. Swan's neglected gem "When Your Lover Has Gone," Broadway and Hollywood film composer Harry Warren's "You're My Everything," and "Blue Midnight" by legendary jazz drummer Paul Motian. In his intimate track notes, Hersch dedicates several songs to longtime companions and a wide-ranging source of inspirations.
Fred Hersch (piano); John Hebert (bass); Eric McPherson (drums)
