Introspective, soulful, and intimate...Fred doing what he does best.

This album, prompted by the isolation of COVID-19 and recorded by the artist in his home, is a stellar example of what makes Fred Hersch one of the most important pianists of the last few decades. His arrangements are unique and intricate, yet imbued with a pervasive sense of humor (or wistfulness), and, above all, are just good to listen to. The arrangements of "Wichita Lineman", "Solitude", and "When I'm Sixty Four" are especially well done.
