MUSICIAN Born:

Brad Mehldau

Pianist Brad Mehldau has recorded and performed extensively since the early 1990s. Mehldau’s most consistent output over the years has taken place in the trio format. Starting in 1996, his group released a series of five records on Warner Bros. entitled The Art of the Trio. Mehldau also has a solo piano recording entitled Elegiac Cycle, and a record called Places that includes both solo piano and trio songs. Elegiac Cycle and Places might be called “concept” albums. They are made up exclusively of original material and have central themes that hover over the compositions. Other Mehldau recordings include Largo, a collaborative effort with the innovative musician and producer Jon Brion, and Anything Goes—a trio outing with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy.

Pat Metheny: From This Place

Read "From This Place" reviewed by John Kelman

A distance that feels a little smaller every day—traveled in a virtual way in less than a second, even physically in a matter of only roughly 7 hours.

To hear bassist Darek Oleszkiewicz interact, navigate, and improvise with today's finest jazz musicians is to understand why he has been deemed the Rolls-Royce of the modern day upright. Carrying the torch ...

Brad Mehldau: Finding Gabriel

Read "Finding Gabriel" reviewed by Emmanuel Di Tommaso

Se un'artista del calibro di Brad Mehldau riesce ancora a stupire dopo aver destrutturato in tutti i modi possibili la musica contemporanea, il motivo può essere solo un'opera d'arte complessa e stratificata, che non a caso trae le sue basi concettuali da una rilettura in chiave post-moderna delle profezie dell'Antico Testamento nel tentativo di offrire una ...
