Metheny Mehldau: Quartet

Read "Quartet" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski


Distinguished musicians playing and recording together tells you that the sky will be the limit for its potential. The collaboration between guitarist Pat Metheny and piano prodigy Brad Mehldau was so fruitful that the initial session that gave us the brilliant Mehldau/Metheny duo album, also produced Quartet, with Mehldau's standard Trio joining forces. ...

Metheny Mehldau: Quartet

Read "Quartet" reviewed by John Kelman


In many ways Quartet--the second disc culled from the December, 2005 collaboration between iconic guitarist Pat Metheny and the younger but increasingly influential pianist Brad Mehldau--is the record that Pat Metheny Group's final Geffen album, 1996's Quartet, should have been. While the Metheny Group record had its charms, it was the closest thing to a contractual ...

Metheny Mehldau: Quartet

Read "Quartet" reviewed by Stephen Wood


One sure sign of musicianship is adaptability. And it is precisely because Pat Metheny and Brad Mehldau possess this very quality that Quartet is so captivating. I find it hard to imagine how a pair of musicians could deliver such a subtly different mood in their second release than in their first. But the guitarist and ...

Pat Metheny / Brad Mehldau: Metheny Mehldau

Read "Metheny Mehldau" reviewed by Stephen Wood


For anyone who forgot how the intimacy of a guitar and piano duo could emblazon musical ideas, just look to Pat Metheny and Brad Mehldau's first collaboration, Metheny Mehldau. In many ways this record continues the conversation between guitar and piano begun by Jim Hall and Bill Evans nearly fifty years before. But that ...

Pat Metheny / Brad Mehldau: Metheny Mehldau

Read "Metheny Mehldau" reviewed by CJ Shearn


This collaboration between Pat Metheny and Brad Mehldau reveals them to be a perfect match for each other. Although they have contrasting, profoundly personal approaches, they share a certain admiration for each other's music. Metheny was transfixed upon hearing the pianist's playing on the minor-key piece “Chill, from Joshua Redman's Moodswing (Warner Bros, 1994), while “Are ...

Pat Metheny / Brad Mehldau: Metheny Mehldau

Read "Metheny Mehldau" reviewed by Steve Holtje


A pianist and a guitarist, both known for beautiful ballad playing, get together for an album of mostly duos. Snooze city, right? That's what I thought after the first track. Boy, was I wrong. This thing is intense! Not that the opening number, written by Mehldau (everything's original; he wrote three, Metheny seven) is sleepytime; I'd ...

Pat Metheny / Brad Mehldau: Metheny Mehldau

Read "Metheny Mehldau" reviewed by David Miller


What happens when two of the most distinct and polarizing musical voices of a generation meet to collaborate on a recording? One might assume there would be a litany of dissonance with patches of too-infrequent beauty, leaving the listener mulling over the potential of such a landmark collaboration. But with Metheny Mehldau, the aptly titled release ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
