You get a lot of music in a Fred Hersch solo recital. And I don't just mean a lot of notes. As a classically trained pianist who studied pop and rock music assiduously in his teens before finding his metier on the New York jazz scene, Hersch has a varied frame of reference he can call upon and he uses it to great effect. Making just his second appearance in Scotland – he played in Inverness 12 or so years ago – he divided this concert into two distinct parts: original compositions and a set of things he hoped we might recognise.
