The album follows up his genre-bending 2014 collaboration with electronic musician Mark Guiliana, Mehliana: Taming the Dragon, and smartly showcases his return to intimate acoustic jazz. Admittedly, the title, Blues and Ballads, is somewhat misleading, as Mehldau only tackles one actual blues with his jaunty, off-kilter take on Charlie Parker's "Cheryl. Otherwise, the blues of the title is implied more in the earthy lyricism of a handful of ballads
Blues and Ballads is a studio album by jazz pianist Brad Mehldau. It is a piano trio recording, with Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums. Mehldau received a Grammy nomination at the end of 2016 for Best Improvised Jazz Solo on the album's "I Concentrate on You". The previous release by the trio of Brad Mehldau (piano), Larry Grenadier (bass), and Jeff Ballard (drums) was Where Do You Start, in 2012.
Highlands, Lowlands," the lone Viklicky original composition, "is not really a ballad," he said. It belongs to 'and More. The song's languid chromaticism has enough Evans and enough Viklicky to make it both a respectful homage and a fresh re-examination rather than a mere reprise. They and drummer Laco Tropp, who shows great taste and sensitivity, first met more than thirty-five years ago, and this collection demonstrates the relaxed empathy that only long-running musical acquaintance can bring.
American piano master Brad Mehldau has played both Bach and electronic funk in the UK recently, but this is a return to acoustic jazz with his long-running trio (Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums) and a tracklist of classic songs. But if all that sounds too familiar, forget it. Mehldau is a genius (and a still-improving one) at taking predictable materials to unpredictable destinations.
