Brad Mehldau Trio - New York-Barcelona Crossing, Vols. 1 & 2

1993; 2 discs
Brad Mehldau / Mario Rossy / Perico Sambeat / Jordi Rossy

Brad Mehldau is a very talented jazz pianist who founded his own trio, the Brad Mehldau Trio. In these two CDs the trio joined the Spanish altoist Perico Sambeat. The quartet confidently stretches out in a variety of tempos and feels, captured live at the Jamboree Club in Barcelona in 1993.

This is a very nice compilation of soft jazz, with the prominence of the piano and alto sax. The two form an immutably equal companionship, and it's interesting to hear them glide along together in improvised harmony.

Vol. 1
Vol. 2
