“…admired as one of the most adventurous pianists to arrive on the jazz scene.”– LA Times
Over the past two decades, no artist has done more to extend and refine the piano trio’s possibilities than Brad Mehldau. With two brilliant Northern California-raised compatriots, bassist Larry Grenadier and (former Santa Cruzan) drummer Jeff Ballard, he’s forged a strikingly beautiful group sound distinguished by a flexible approach in which the players continuously trade roles, often eschewing traditional bass and drum solos while elaborating on the form of a song. His brand new Nonesuch release, Ode, is a ravishing collection of original music and his first studio recording with the trio in seven years.
