Brad Mehldau Trio
Pianist Brad Mehldau has collaborated with musicians within (Pat Metheny, Wayne Shorter) and outside of the jazz genre (Willie Nelson, Renée Fleming), composed film scores, curated jazz series and recorded solo works. But the trio’s where he shines brightest. His current threesome—together since 2005 and featuring Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums. On March 13, 2012 Nonesuch Records released an album of original songs from the Brad Mehldau Trio – Ode – the first from the trio since 2008’s live Village Vanguard disc and the first studio trio recording since 2005’s Day is Done. Nonesuch released the Brad Mehldau Trio’s Where Do You Start, a companion disc to the critically acclaimed Ode, on September 18, 2012. Whereas Ode featured 11 songs composed by Mehldau, Where Do You Start comprises the Trio’s interpretations of 10 tunes by other composers, along with one Mehldau original.
