Brad Mehldau Trio

When: Wed., Nov. 4, 7:30 p.m. 2015

As a soloist, pianist Brad Mehldau leaves no key unturned, exploring the keyboard in his dense and dripping portraits in jazz. The 45-year-old continues in the path of Philadelphia great McCoy Tyner with a remarkable independence between his hands, as if two deft, single-handed musicians were simultaneously riffing at the piano bench. But Mehldau is also a great communicator, sparring with his longtime trio of bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard to explore the jazz canon and beyond, from a cover of Oasis’ “Wonderwall” to “The Brady Bunch Variations for Piano and Orchestra.”
