BRAD MEHLDAU TRIO
Seymour Reads the Constitution!
‘The pianist Brad Mehldau has led this iteration of his pace-setting trio since 2005, and it has evolved into a graceful powerhouse, equally savvy about groove and harmony.
’ – New York Times ‘Three musicians who share a common aesthetic in which gestures are stated softly and with utmost subtlety. When music-making becomes this transparent, listeners can relish details of texture and voicing.’ – Chicago Tribune Nonesuch Records releases the Brad Mehldau Trio’s Seymour Reads The Constitution! The pianist and his longtime trio, which includes drummer Jeff Ballard and bassist Larry Grenadier, perform three Mehldau originals combined with interpretations of pop songs (Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson), jazz tunes (Elmo Hope, Sam Rivers), and one work from the American songbook (Frederick Loewe’s ‘Almost Like Being in Love’).
