Night & The Music
by Fred Hersch
Released: Jan 2007
Another impressionistic, yet often energetic, ballad set from a master jazz pianist who plays so beautifully that you may not even notice the artistry (or the fact that drummer Nesheet Waits and bassist Drew Gress are in constant motion). Hersch and his rhythm section prize group interplay, yet they all have a lyrical touch that respects melodicism over flash. On "How Deep is the Ocean," they play so beautifully that it doesn't even matter that the Irving Berlin standard is just a fast-receding touchstone.
