DIGIPACK EDITION

A supremely gifted soloist with a sophisticated, yet unself-conscious approach to playing standards and his own original compositions, Fred Hersch plays in this new album in a way that makes it seem as though he is the finest jazz pianist in the world. That's an impossible assertion, of course. There are a dozen, maybe more pianists who have achieved this  level artistry.

But while you are listening to Open Book, you feel he can wear that title with astounding ease. Thoroughly recommended!
