Jazz Pianist Ready To Rock


What: An Evening of Jazz with Fred Hersch

 When:  Fri, 10/17 8PM

  Fred Hersch comes to Delray’s Arts Garage with a big reputation. No less an authority than the New York Tiimes has  praised him as “singular among the trailblazers of their art, a largely unsung innovator of this borderless, individualistic jazz – a jazz for the 21st century.”

And it doesn’t end with the Times, Vanity Fair called Hersch “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade.”
He’ll be in town for one night, don’t miss him. Visit
