O’s Notes: Live In Europe was re-released as a part of a set The Fred Hersch Trio: 10 Years/6 Discs in 2019. Originally released in 2018, we pulled out our original Europe disc and enjoyed it once again, as much as the live audience in Brussels, November 24, 2017! Eric McPherson (d) and John Hébert (b) join Hersch (p) for this set that includes 6 originals and 4 covers. There are soft ballads like ”Bristol Fog”, “Newklypso” for Sonny Rollins, and upbeat burners like “Black Nile” with a resounding opening drum solo! There is magic in the spontaneity of a live recording and the Trio was in rare form!
