Fred has earned #2 in the Piano category & “Sunday Night at The Vanguard” earns # 3 Jazz Album of the Year and Fred Hersch Trio #4 Jazz Group of the Year!!
My jazz/theater piece My Coma Dreams is now available on DVD to benefit Treatment Action Group, a global health non-profit think tank that works to solve the problems of AIDS, Hepatitis-C and TB world-wide.
In addition to the 85-minute performance, there are extra behind-the-scenes interviews and feature with the participants.
World AIDS Day is December 1st and this is an important cause. The holidays are coming, so this would make a great gift. 😉

- Jazz Musician Of The Year
