Nico GORI Fred HERSCH - Da Vinci (Bee Jazz 2012)

The duo format is the most intimate dialogue between two musicians, a time when each player has to give up, dig deep to draw out the music from the instruments, the scores, from improvisations by the other. All this happens magically and so it has been from the first time Nico Gori played with Fred Hersch.
Proclaimed by Vanity Fair magazine, “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade or so,” Fred Hersch balances his internationally recognized instrumental skills with significant achievement as a composer, bandleader, and theatrical conceptualist, as well as remaining an in-demand collaborator with other noted bandleaders and vocalists.
