JAZZ TIMES has hailed his unaccompanied playing as โ€œa complete, self-sufficient, uniquely pure art form.โ€ In 2006, Hersch became the first artist in the 75-year history of New Yorkโ€™s legendary Village Vanguard to play a weeklong engagement as a solo pianist. His second solo run there was documented on the GRAMMYยฎ Award Nominated โ€˜Alone at the Vanguardโ€™, one of five recordings heโ€™s made at the iconic New York City club. His 2017 Palmetto album Open Book was, as the title implies, his most revealing and intimate solo outing, and was nominated for two 2018 GRAMMYยฎ Awards.

Hersch has long set the standard for expressive interpretation and inventive creativity in a stunning variety of settings, whether through his exquisite solo performances, as the leader of one of jazzโ€™s era-defining trios, or in eloquent dialogue with his deeply attuned duo partners. With more than three-dozen albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, Hersch consistently receives lavish critical praise and numerous international awards for each highly anticipated new release. His latest album with his long-standing trio, 2018โ€™s โ€˜Live In Europeโ€™, documents one remarkable evening in Brussels and has been hailed as its best to date โ€“ considerable praise for an ensemble that consistently plays at such a staggeringly high level.
