Read "Brad Mehldau Trio Live At The Konzerthaus" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


Brad Mehldau Trio Konzerthaus Vienna May 26, 2021 After the prolonged dry spell of concert-less months owing to the Covid Pandemic, pretty much any live music was likely to attract an audience to the Konzerthaus in Vienna to experience the magic of space and sound in person, and in real-time ...

Brad Mehldau Trio all'Auditorium Parco della Musica

Read "Brad Mehldau Trio all'Auditorium Parco della Musica" reviewed by Serena Antinucci


Brad Mehldau Trio Auditorium Parco della Musica Roma 3.10.2019 Chi sa com'era Brad Mehldau a 20 anni? Me lo sono chiesta più volte durante il concerto. Se non fosse perché il mio vicino di poltrona, un emozionato signore di mezza età, prima che iniziasse la performance del Trio di Mehldau, mi ...

Il meglio del 2018 secondo Angelo Leonardi

Read "Il meglio del 2018 secondo Angelo Leonardi" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Ogni linguaggio che partecipa alla multiforme scena del jazz contemporaneo ha espresso dischi eccellenti, equiparabili per valore artistico . Dal mio punto di vista, accanto alle opere di veterani sempre creativi come Henry Threadgill, Kenny Barron, Bill Frisell e Franco D'Andrea, ho ammirato i lavori di quaranta/cinquantenni come Jamie Saft, JD Allen, Michael Leonhart, Edward Simon ...

Brad Mehldau Trio al Parco della Musica, Roma

Read "Brad Mehldau Trio al Parco della Musica, Roma" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Brad Mehldau Trio Parco della Musica Roma 12.05.2018 Ogni tanto capita che un artista esca dal suo ambito di riferimento generalmente ristretto per venire esposto a un pubblico più vasto ed eterogeneo. Succede ad esempio a quei musicisti jazz che vengono “scoperti," più o meno occasionalmente, da un pubblico generico ...

Brad Mehldau Trio: Seymour Reads The Constitution!

Read "Seymour Reads The Constitution!" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Pianist Brad Mehldau has an adventurous and innovative side, one that he displays on Largo (Warner Brothers, 2002) and Highway Rider (Nonesuch, 2010), albums that feature expansive and--with Largo--electronic inputs. But he always returns to the acoustic trio format that brought him to prominence. It began with a series of five Art Of The Trio albums ...

Brad Mehldau Trio: Seymour Reads The Constitution!

Read "Seymour Reads The Constitution!" reviewed by Doug Collette


The track listing of Seymour Reads The Constitution! is ultimately as deceptive as the album's title (not to mention its cryptic cover image). The ten cuts feature only three compositions written by Brad Mehldau, yet these pieces constitute almost half the record's sixty-plus minutes playing time. As a result, the covers provide exceptional pacing because the ...

Brad Mehldau Trio: Blues and Ballads

Read "Blues and Ballads" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Call Brad Mehldau's Blues and Ballads the pianist's “Every Man Set." There has been, from the beginning of Mehldau's career, a sense of the cerebral in his approach, with its classical music influences and his deep technical virtuosity. Throw the sometimes dense and erudite writing for selected liner notes (mostly earlier in his career) ...

Brad Mehldau Trio: Blues and Ballads

Read "Blues and Ballads" reviewed by Geno Thackara


It's easy to play the blues--or at the very least it's easy to learn the basics--but keeping the form fresh and interesting is another matter entirely. Likewise, any beginner can tackle a quiet ballad, but presenting something simple and pretty is really harder than it sounds. The Brad Mehldau Trio manages its always-distinctive blend of all ...

Brad Mehldau Trio: Where Do You Start

Read "Where Do You Start" reviewed by John Kelman


Hot on the heels of Brad Mehldau's Ode (Nonesuch, 2012)--the pianist's first all-original set with his current trio--comes Where Do You Start, culled from the same recording sessions but, with the exception of one Mehldau tune, all cover material. This isn't the first time Mehldau has split a particularly fruitful session down the same compositional line: ...
