Brad Mehldau Trio – Live

by Jeremy O'Bryan

Brad Mehldau and his trio, rounded out by drummer Jeff Ballard and bassist Larry Grenadier, is a five-star recording. I can’t stop listening to it. Here ‘s a story on NPR about the proclivity of Mr. Mehldau to cover modern-era Rock tunes.

Indeed, to hear the trio hammering out tunes such as Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun is a treat.

The new album, recorded live at the Village Vanguard in New York City, is available to buy on the artist’s Web site — MP3s to download at 320 kbps. Or on iTunes.
