Summary
"Good Things Happen Slowly is [Fred Hersch's] memoir. It's the story of the first openly gay, HIV-positive jazz player; a deep look into the cloistered jazz culture that made such a status both transgressive and ground-breaking; and a profound exploration of how Hersch's two-month-long coma in 2007 led to his creating some of the finest, most direct, and most emotionally compelling music of his career."--Jacket
Summary
The eight-time Grammy-nominated music artist describes his experiences of being one of the first openly gay, HIV-positive musicians in the cloistered, largely African-American jazz world, sharing additional insights into his two-month medically induced coma in 2007, from which he would emerge to create some of the most emotionally compelling music of his career
