Summary
Jazz could not contain Fred Hersch. His meteoric rise as a talented session pianist - one who played with the giants of the 20th century in the autumn of their careers, including Art Farmer, Joe Henderson, and more - blossomed further in the nineties and beyond into a compositional genius that defied the boundaries of bop, sweeping in elements of pop, classical, and folk to create a wholly new music. 'Good Things Happen Slowly' is a memoir, but it is also more than that. It's the story of the first openly gay, HIV-positive jazz player, and a deep look into the cloistered, largely African-American jazz culture that made such a status both transgressive and groundbreaking
