fred hersch: wisdom for singers in jazztimes


My good friend Edel Meade hipped me to this fabulous article in JazzTimes that was posted last week. It in, Roseanna Vitro interviews Fred Hersch about rehearsals, scatting, set planning, lyric interpretation, recordings and more. It’s a great read for singers or instrumentalists who work with singers, as Hersch does. Check it out and let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

    This quote “I did teach a basic class at the New School many years ago for singers and pianists on how not to kill each other. It was very interesting.” made me laugh out loud. Thanks.
