Mehldau, Brad

Up one level

Brad Mehldau (Jazz/Piano) Critically lauded as the heir apparent to the piano trio tradition of Keith Jarrett and Bill Evans, Mehldau's new band - featuring drummer Jeff Ballard - has taken on a more intense rhythmic character. A musical anglophile, his repertoire features reworkings of Radiohead, The Beatles and Nick Drake, as well as jazz standards.  Having performed around the world with his trio and as a solo pianist, Mehldau has formed a reputation as an intense performer and thrilling improviser.  He has collaborated and performed with; Joshua Redman, Renee Fleming, John Scofield, Stanley Kubrick, Willie Nelson and most recently with jazz guitarist Pat Metheny on the acclaimed Metheny Mehldau (Nonesuch – 2006).   Brad will perform with his well-regarded trio featuring Larry Grenadier, bass and Jeff Ballard, drums.
