Biography

Bradford Alexander Mehldau is an American jazz pianist, composer and arranger. He studied music at the New School and was a member of Joshua Redman’s quartet with bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade in the mid-1990s, and has led his own trio since the early 1990s. His first long-term trio featured bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer George Rossy, and later Jeff Ballard. Since the early 2000s Mehldau has incorporated other musical formats in addition to trio and solo piano. He’s recorded rock and classical repertoire and toured and recorded with guitarist Pat Metheny. Mehldau has absorbed aspects of pop, rock and classical music, including German Romanticism into his writing and playing. Mehldau won Down Beat’s Readers Poll piano award in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2007, 2011 and 2012. He was the 2006 winner of the Miles Davis Prize awarded by the Montreal International Jazz Festival. He has been nominated for several Grammy Awards including Best Jazz Instrument Solo on “Blame it On My Youth” from the Art of the Trio Volume One in 1998, Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, Individual or Group for Art of the Trio: 4 Back at the Vanguard in 2000, Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group for Brad Mehldau Trio Live in 2009, Best Improvised Jazz Solo for the title track of Ode in 2013, and Best Improvised Jazz Solo for “Sleeping Giant” from Mehliana: Taming the Dragon in 2015. Mehldau’s debut album for Nonesuch was a solo piano performance recorded live at Sumida Triphony Hall in Tokyo on February 15, 2003 but released in September of 2004. The album received universally favorable reviews. AllMusic awarded the album 4 ½ stars and called it an “intense, cerebral, and beautiful album.” The Guardian’s John Fordham identifies it as “Another bold step on Mehldau’s imperious way.” On All About Jazz, Doug Collete noted, “Mehldau plays beautifully on his own, his work is florid with detail, yet never just flowery. There is a deeply felt passion in all he plays, and that’s exactly why he is so engrossing to hear: in a solo setting Mehldau demonstrates how he selects his ideas altogether discriminatingly from what must be a veritable flood of variations that occur to him as he plays. It’s not long into listening to Live in Tokyo that you are reminded how skillfully he runs the gamut of emotion in his playing.” JazzTimes reviewer, Harvey Siders commented “Few pianists can match Brad Mehldau when it comes to cross-fertilizing jazz, classical and rock. The same applies for technique, taste and intellectual curiosity. All of those qualities are on display in Mehldau’s latest CD.” For the 15th anniversary of the album, Run Out Groove in conjunction with Nonesuch Records is releasing Live In Tokyo on vinyl for the first time and including the full set, that features tracks making their debut in the U.S. on any format for the first time.

Affordable audiophile jazz, first time on vinyl!
This 1961 performance sounds GREAT, guaranteed to satisfy any Monk afficionado. The concert was sourced directly from analog tape, the vinyl itself is high grade, audiophile quality. We can’t recommend this title enough, both for the hardcore jazzbo or those looking to start their jazz stacks.

Backed by the dynamic lineup of Monk’s Dream and Criss-Cross, the inimitable Monk plays some of his most famous originals for a frenzied crowd at the Paris Olympia. 

 Avec l’énergique quatuor de Monk’s Dream et Criss-Cross, l’inimitable Monk joue quelques-unes de ses plus célèbres compositions devant une foule en délire à l’Olympia de Paris.

After hearing for years that Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” is the greatest jazz album of all-time, I picked it up and it just didn’t resonate with me the way stuff like Miles Davis’ “Walkin’” or Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges’ “Side By Side” did Clearly the issue is mine and not the album’s, so I will have to give it another shot. I probably don’t know what to listen for, but so far, it doesn’t live up to the hype.

I played a track from this Alice Coltrane comp on yesterday’s show, her “Ashram Years”. Comments ranged from “Not for me, sorry” to “This is Amazing!
Your ears can decide if you like it enough to buy it but if you do, rest assured that you’ll be getting a quality pressing that’s well packaged and delivers a fantastic “vinyl experience”.  As a new indie shop owner, I’ve decided I need to spread the word of Alice Coltrane.  Recent reissues on the Antarctica Starts Here label were sub par, especially when compared to this Luaka Bop pressing.
This one’s trance-inducing and beautifully cosmic, if that’s your kinda thing.

Stan Getz / João Gilberto Featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim ‎– Getz / Gilberto (1964)

Spinning my original mono copy in tribute to master João Gilberto, who passed away yesterday at age 88. 
My lady came down with some coffee, Sunday hangout.  Upon listening to the very first passages she remarked “OMG I’m seeing that entire period we were first dating, flashing right before me.” 
That was 2001. His guitar is permanent fabric to the most important and treasured of my life’s soundtrack.  
Obrigado, Sr. Gilberto
