A welcome surprise: I had no idea that veteran pianist Fred Hersch and the relatively new piano star Sullivan Fortner had worked together. As it turns out, they made a joint appearance at Jazz At Lincoln Center in 2016. Here they are on that occasion in a duet on Ornette Coleman’s 1959 composition “Turnaround,” first heard that year on Coleman’s album Tomorrow Is The Question. In the photos and the video, Hersch is on your left, Fortner on your right
Thanks to a resourceful YouTube contributor, Scott Morgan, for posting that video.
You’ll find the Ornette Coleman quintet’s original recording of “Turnaround” here.
