Brad Mehldau Trio

The band is everything with Brad Mehldau's trio. Beyond that the musicians play with a sense of openness and immediacy that allows the pieces to evolve as they're played. The tunes—mostly Mehldau originals from his recent Places CD—are generally abstractions that act as starting points. Mehldau generally leads melodically and harmonically, but rhythm as established by all three is their main message. Grenadier and Rossy occasionally solo but usually in the context of the trio—their solos are guided as much or more by the other players as by themselves. There are usually no clean starting or stopping points for solos—the music fuses just together. The concert was well received by a full house—a wonderful evening. And the acoustics were good.
Brad Mehldau - piano; Larry Grenadier - bass; Jorge Rossy - drums.
