Fred Hersch is a 10–time GRAMMY Award nominee, a select member of jazz’s piano pantheon, and an influential creative force in contemporary music. Listening to his solo piano album Alone At The Vanguard (Palmetto, 2011), “I expected the virtuosity—Hersch, after all, is a living legend,” Jonathan Blitzer wrote in The New Yorker. “What I didn’t expect, and what floored me, was how per­sonal and transporting it all felt…There’s a humbling vitality in these songs, and a palpable sense of wis­dom, too. It’s the sound of someone who’s been places.”

Seven collaborative and five solo albums into her career, the GRAMMY–winning Esperanza Spalding continues to intuitively, deftly expand upon both her art and herself as a world–renowned, genre–bending composer, bassist, and vocalist.
