Introducing Brad Mehldau

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Pianist Brad Mehldau's debut as a leader features his straight-ahead style in trios with either Larry Grenadier or Christian McBride on bass and Jorge Rossy or Brian Blade on drums. The well-rounded set is highlighted by tasteful and swinging versions of five standards including John Coltrane's "Countdown," "It Might As Well Be Spring," and "From This Moment On" and four of the pianist's originals. This CD which is sometimes available at a budget price serves as a fine start to what should be a productive career.

    Excellent.

    This is an excellent recording. Brad is able to make you forget about all the awful music you hear all the time and focus in on what he and his trio are doing, making REAL music. the first track is an old standard that he plays in a latin style and in 7! it's just awesome from start to finish. I recommend the heck out of this cd.
