Weathering one of the most perilous periods of his life during a recent stretch of calamitous health has only made Fred Hersch a bolder, more resilient and more determined pianist and bandleader. Much as we love to hear him play in a trio setting, we'll always jump at the chance to hear him with a suitable foil—and saxophonist Joe Lovano is as sympathetic and versatile as they come.
