This event date has passed.
With his self-proclaimed affection for popular music combined with his classical training, Mehldau has become universally admired as one of the most adventurous pianists to arrive on the jazz scene. His critical acclaim as a bandleader and collaborator with the likes of Pat Metheny, Renee Fleming, and Joshua Redman, continues to garner him admiration from jazz purists and music enthusiasts alike.
Mehldau’s latest CD was named “Jazz Album of the year” in the 2011-2012 Downbeat Reader’s Poll, and he also topped the list of jazz pianists in that same poll. Mehldau returns with his regular trio featuring bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard.
