To hear Fred Hersch play is to learn by osmosis what “touch” on the piano is all about. In this sublime live recording— documenting his second week-long residency at New York’s famed Village Vanguard—Hersch gives what amounts to a recorded master class in aural eloquence. From a tender reading of the famed standard “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning” to affecting, originals like “Echoes,” the album stands as continued proof that Hersch is in a musical league all his own.
