Brad Mehldau


One of the most lyrical and intimate voices of contemporary jazz piano, and described by The New York Times as ‘the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years’, GRAMMY Award-winning Brad Mehldau combines the essence of jazz exploration with classical romanticism and pop allure. From critical acclaim as a bandleader, to major collaborations with artists such as jazz guitarist Pat Metheny, soprano Renee Fleming and saxophonist Joshua Redman, Mehldau continues to garner admiration from jazz purists and music enthusiasts alike. His forays into melding musical idioms, in both trio settings (with Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums) and solo, have seen brilliant re-workings of songs from writers including The Beatles, Cole Porter, Radiohead, Paul Simon, Gershwin and Nick Drake; alongside a significant catalogue of original compositions.
