Bill Evans. Joe Henderson. But pianist Brad Mehldau is more than up to this daunting challenge.

Along with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy, he has made a stunning album of exploratory jazz that holds its own with the great "Live at the Village Vanguard" recordings of the past.

Brad¿s genius is displayed wonderfully through his improvisation and his interaction with his marvelous accompanists. The music swings and touches, but more than that is displays Brad¿s artistic accomplishment ¿ music as fine art.
