Brad Mehldau, piano
Larry Grenadier, bass
Jeff Ballard, drums
Pianist Brad Mehldau has created an extraordinary body of standards for the 21st century, drawing on great songs from the likes of Radiohead and Nick Drake to create a glorious style of lyrical improvisation that takes jazz into a new realm, as heard on his great Nonesuch album Blues and Ballads.
‘Every time Brad Mehldau opens the door on his private world of sidelong waltzes or camouflaged blues, his fans are entranced all over again. Mehldau is a genius at taking predictable materials to unpredictable destinations.’ THE GUARDIAN
