Brad Mehldau (born August 23, 1970) is an American jazz pianist. Besides leading his own group, the Brad Mehldau Trio, he has performed with multitudes of renowned artists, including Pat Metheny, Wayne Shorter, Joshua Redman, Christian McBride, Michael Brecker, Chris Potter, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jimmy Cobb, and classical vocalists Renee Fleming and Anne Sofie von Otter.



Biography
Mehldau was born Bradford Alexander Mehldau in 1970 in Jacksonville, Florida. His family moved to Connecticut where Mehldau spent most of his childhood and high school. While a sophomore in high school, he won Berklee College's Best All-Around Musician Award. Mehldau moved to New York in 1988 to study jazz at The New School, studying under Fred Hersch, Junior Mance and Kenny Werner, and also playing with Jimmy Cobb. He went on to play as sideman with a variety of musicians, most importantly with the Joshua Redman quartet, before forming his own trio in 1994, with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy, and later Jeff Ballard, who succeeded Rossy in 2005. In addition to his trio work, Mehldau collaborated with guitarist Pat Metheny, releasing two albums with him and embarking on a worldwide tour along with Grenadier and Ballard.

Recording primarily for Nonesuch Records, Mehldau plays original compositions, jazz standards and jazz arrangements of popular music, especially rock music. With his trio, he has recorded arrangements of the music of Nick Drake, The Beatles, Radiohead and Paul Simon among others, and recorded the Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" on his 2006 album, Live. Mehldau has also expressed an interest in and knowledge of philosophy, in particular of music and art. He has played and recorded solo and with co-leaders Peter Bernstein, Mark Turner, Charlie Haden, Charles Lloyd, Pat Metheny and others. In 2004, Mehldau toured with Kurt Rosenwinkel and Joshua Redman.

He cites as influences Larry Goldings, Kevin Hays, Peter Bernstein, Mark Turner, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jesse Davis, David Sanchez and the other members of his own trio. His classical training shows, and he often plays a separate melody with each hand in unusual rhythmic meters. For example, he plays his arrangement of Jerome Kern's standard "All the Things You Are" on Art of the Trio, Vol. IV in A major (a half-step up from the original key, A-flat major) played in 7/4 time. On Day Is Done, he also plays Paul Simon's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" in 7/4. Another of Mehldau's signature techniques is to create an ostinato in his right hand whilst developing a motivic idea in his left hand.

Mehldau cherishes Brazilian music, citing Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and Simone. In 2006 he appeared at the Auditório do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo and declared: "I only met Simone's work last year and it was like meeting Sarah Vaughan or Dinah Washington. She has a strong identity and sings with a lot of passion and grace".

Mehldau is married to Dutch jazz vocalist Fleurine, with whom he has recorded and toured extensively.

Piyanodaki genç Werther
Charlie Haden'ın "Yaratıcılığı en fazla ciddiye alan, müziğe derinlemesine bakabilen tek genç cazcı," Wayne Shorter'ın ise "Kalkacak ilk uzay gemisinin kaptanı" dediği piyanist Brad Mehldau caz eleştirmenlerine göre 1960'lardan bu yana caz dünyasına giren en yaratıcı piyanist. 1997 sonrasında birbiri ardına yayımlanan beş "The Art of The Trio" albümüyle iddialı bir başlangıç yaptı. Ardından solo albümü "Elegiac Cycle"da Bill Evans'ın "Conversation With Myself"ini çağrıştıran zorlu iç keşif serüvenine tanık olduk. Özel hayatı da Evans'ınki gibi dalgalı olan Mehldau çok nadir röportaj veriyor. Ufuk açan triosuyla 2001 ve 2003'te İstanbul Caz Festivali'ne gelmişti. Eski defterleri karıştırdık, 1999'da Down Beat ve Jazizz dergisinde yayımlanan iki röportaj çıktı, metinleri harmanladık. (Devamı için linki açınız)
