About Alone at the Vanguard

The Village Vanguard has been open since 1935 and up until a few years ago they had never invited a pianist to perform solo at the club. Fred Hersch holds the unique distinction of being the first pianist in the long history of the Vanguard to do just that....twice—so far.

Alone at the Vanguard documents Mr. Hersch's second solo piano engagement (Nov 30—Dec 5, 2010) at the renowned club. All 6 nights and 12 sets were recorded and there was much to choose from, but in the end it was the last set of the last night that Fred chose to go with. Some say that since Fred recovered from his much-documented coma, his playing is deeper and more emotional. Although all of the sets had great performances, this last set from the last night is a true testament to his mastery.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
