A note from Daniel about this concert:
I can't tell you how excited I am to be presenting one of the living masters of the piano, Fred Hersch, at Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open in a very special duo concert with one of his longtime collaborators, the amazing trumpet player Ralph Alessi. These two consummate musicians have an extraordinary chemistry together. Hearing them in the intimate setting of the Brooklyn Conservatory is not to be missed!

As a fellow pianist, I need to say a few extra words about Fred Hersch. Fred is a truly an inspiration. Several years ago, I was fortunate to have some piano lessons with him. Fred's approach to music made an impact on me that has lasted to this day. His mastery of the instrument has been an inspiration to an entire generation of younger pianists. Fred continues to create compelling music in a variety of settings, from solo piano to larger theatrical works. All of them are breathtakingly beautiful, full of adventure and convey the joy of being alive. I can safely say that the worldwide community of jazz musicians and listeners are thankful that we have been able to experience the music of Fred Hersch for many years. It's been a true gift. Please come join us to hear Fred and Ralph in what will surely be an exquisite musical experience.

"the downtown scene has established an outpost in Brooklyn . . . where local practitioners are presenting a music so diverse and eclectic it doesn't even fit under the general umbrella of avant-garde." - The Wall Street Journal

"the concerts always feature top-flight artists . . . exciting, community-based stuff"
- Jazziz Magazine

"Celebrate music by being a part of the concert series that 'Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open' provides for the community at large!!! We need each other to carry on... Sounds & Feelings"
- Jazz legend Joe Lovano

"Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open is not just another concert series. One of the elements that makes it special-for both the audience and the musicians-is that artists are invited to discuss their process and answer questions as they arise. This creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere in which the barriers between audience and performers are removed and true understanding and appreciation can take place." - Eileen Willis, Metropolitan Museum of Art
