“Brad Mehldau is our jazz generation’s Conjurer-In-Chief. His music is nothing short of magic — an impossible wonder of ecstatic and empathic creative communion.”
—Saxophonist, Joshua Redman
Considered to be “the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years” (The New York Times) with the touch of Bill Evans, range of Keith Jarrett, and innovation of Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau is one of the greatest musical giants of our time. The 2020 GRAMMY-winner is perhaps most well-known for his stunning improvisations that transcend genre through their combination of jazz exploration, classical romanticism, and pop allure. His latest suite, 14 Reveries for Piano, brings together the dichotomy of his musical personality as both improviser and structural genius – the work is a meditation on the space a composer leaves between specific directions that lets the beauty of the music reveal itself, while still allowing new discovery. As he most often performs with his celebrated trio, this solo recital is a rare opportunity to hear this legendary pure voice as both musician and composer uninterrupted.
