‘Brad Mehldau is the doyen of contemporary jazz pianists,’ says The Guardian, ‘an improviser whose instinctive, emotional command of the instrument is complemented by a formidable intellect.’
Performing internationally since the mid-1990s, Mehldau is renowned for his distinctive combination of jazz standards and originals with compositions by Nirvana, Radiohead and Nick Drake.
He’s worked with everyone from Willie Nelson to Charlie Haden, and is a renowned solo performer, but is perhaps at his finest when leading his trio, featuring Jeff Ballard and Larry Grenadier. They return to the Festival performing from their latest Nonesuch album Ode.
