Palmetto’s new box set celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the acclaimed Fred Hersch Trio, featuring renowned jazz pianist and composer Fred Hersch with bassist John Hébert and drummer Eric McPherson. Though Hersch’s originals are prominent throughout this set, tracks also feature a deep exploration of compositions by jazz luminaries such as Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, and Jaki Byard. The set includes all five albums released by the label: Whirl (2010), the two-disc Alive at the Vanguard (2012), Floating (2014), Sunday Night at the Vanguard (2016), and Live in Europe (2018). Additionally, an accompanying booklet features liner notes written by Hersch and a forward by award-winning author and jazz historian Ted Gioia. On the whole, 10 Years / 6 Discs is an enjoyable set for jazz lovers, and a great introduction to listeners unfamiliar with Hersch’s artistry.
