The Ballad of Fred Hersch is an intimate portrait of one of today’s foremost jazz pianists and composers and his extraordinary work. A genre unto himself, Hersch has significantly influenced a new generation of musicians and jazz itself. His poignant story as an AIDS survivor and openly gay man reveal an unlikely musical journey and an irrepressible American master.
