Brad Mehldau Trio: Live
Brad Mehldau's trio is always discovering new and exciting ways of working with a song, which makes its live shows constant revelations. Recording these shows is like capturing lighting in a bottle. On this set, the trio proves that Oasis deserves the jazz treament with its off-center yet exquisitely funky reading of "Wonderwall." Then, the group dives deep into impressionism with a distilled meditation on "The Very Thought of You," which proves that there are still new dimensions and emotions to be revealed in even the most recorded jazz standards.
