Album Reviews:

Down Beat (p.66) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "This beautifully recorded performance exemplifies Hersch's approach. He sustains a reflective mood in relatively conservative as well as adventurous readings of standard and original material."

JazzTimes (p.93) - "It is lush yet measured, luminously poetic yet unsentimental, impulsively inspired yet formally elegant."

Album Notes

Recording information: The Bimhuis, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (05/31/2003).

Photographer: Luciana Pampalone.

Pianist Fred Hersch has been turning in top-notch performances as both a sideman and a leader since the late 1970s and early '80s. 2006's IN AMSTERDAM: LIVE AT THE BIMHUI is a Hersch tour de force that has the artist moving through a diverse and challenging repertoire of piano music. Pieces by Thelonious Monk, Hoagy Carmichael, and Antonio Carlos Jobim are featured in the program, but it's Hersch's distinctive approach to the keys--a mixture of traditional jazz, contemporary classical, and experimental sensibilities--that distinguishes this fine recording.
