Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Brad Mehldau Trio



Live is the second release from The Brad Mehldau Trio with Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums. In the trio setting, Mehldau has habitually rotated between the studio setting and the live setting. Live finds the trio a few years along in its development, and the interchange between the three members unfolds with a different kind of ease. Live is the fourth Mehldau trio release recorded at the Village Vanguard club in New York City, and the songs were culled from performances that took place there October 11-15, 2006. The record begins with “Wonderwall” from the band Oasis. Another great cover is “Black Hole Sun”, an arrangement of the song from the band Soundgarden. Live features 5 original compositions of Mehldau’s. 4 of them are released here for the first time. – Joe Parsaca
