  • About This Album

    From 1994–2004, the Brad Mehldau Trio was composed of Larry Grenadier on bass, Jorge Rossy on drums, and Mehldau on piano. Jeff Ballard recently replaced Rossy, and House on Hill is the final recording from the previous group. Seven of its tracks come from a two-day session in 2002, when the trio recorded eighteen songs in total. That material was divided into Mehldau originals and interpretations of existing songs; the latter group became Anything Goes, released in 2004. The originals are presented here with two additional songs—“August Ending” and “Fear and Trembling”—from a more recent recording session. “All of the songs were written between 2000 and 2002, and they form a time capsule of my writing then, and of the way the trio was playing together,” Mehldau says, “I am so glad that this music is finally able to see the light of day.”
