Standards. Fundamentals. Basics. They're what you have to know, what you have to be able to do, if you want to be good at something. If you want to be a player, play some songs. Rodgers. Porter. Kern. "The fundamental things apply..." Standards are what you have to know if you want to work or even just to jam - and especially if you want to create your own songs. Standards are what the Fred Hersch Trio plays on their melodic album Dancing in the Dark.


"His most recent record, Dancing in the Dark (Chesky), represents a giant leap forward for an elegant and searching stylist who can roast chestnuts as worn as 'All the Things You Are' and 'My Funny Valentine.'"
