Brad Mehldau Trio

Brad Mehldau Trio
Thursday, December 4, 2014 - 8:00pm

Pre-performance Talk
7PM • Jackson Hall

Speaker:
Cory Combs, Director of Outreach, Music, and Enrichment, The Nueva School

“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.
