Brad Mehldau Trio
July 14 – Arena Santa Giuliana | Tickets
Brad Mehldau returns to Perugia, in trio with Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums.
His first time in Perugia was in 1993, a little-known pianist of the Joshua Redman Quartet. His debut as a soloist took place in 1997, in the magical nights at La Turrenetta.
Since then, he’s frequently been included in the program, both in Perugia and in Orvieto, and has become a fan favorite. A mutual love, since his album “Places” is dedicated to the places which left a mark on his memory, and one of the most beautiful tracks of that record is called Perugia. Brad Mehldau is today one of the most successful and all-around pianists, thanks to his intensity which makes him one with his piano. His piano trio recalls the best examples expressed by this difficult and elegant ensemble, from Bill Evans to Keith Jarrett. For that reason, he dared to record five albums with this trio, a small miracle of balance, and entitle them “The Art of the Trio” without anyone complaining about that title which might have sounded conceited.
The Brad Mehldau Trio will replace “Redman-Mehldau-Mcbride-Blade: A MoodSwing Reunion”, originally scheduled for July 16, 2020, and initially postponed to 2021.
