Brad Mehldau Trio at Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts
“One of the most consistently fascinating voices in current jazz” (JazzTimes), pianist and composer Brad Mehldau is an intensely expressive improviser and ambitious and adventurous composer. (For further proof of the latter, see Jeremy Denk’s November 5 recital, where he will perform a stunning new Mehldau piece.) For the past two decades, Mehldau has shined brightest when masterfully stretching, freeing and refining the collective creative possibilities of the trio format. His celebrated group features two responsive and equally brilliant sidemen—bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard.
