Jazz

We gave it an A-

For many, Mehldau is the young jazz pianist of choice, for combining a technical grasp with a knack for transcending traditionalism and making each solo an excursion, not unlike his hero Keith Jarrett. Mehldau does it time and again with his telepathic trio, from the knotty recasting of ”All the Things You Are” to a sighing gracefulness on his ”Sehnsucht.” On Art of the Trio 4, Back at the Vanguard, he shows that he’s in tune with his generation, too, turning Radiohead’s ”Exit Music (for a Film)” into an inventive etude.
