  • about Brad Mehldau Trio

    The trio format has been Brad Mehldau’s preferred musical unit for much of his performing and recording career. The first Brad Mehldau Trio album, and the first in the Art of the Trio series, came out on Warner Bros. in 1996. This record featured the original trio configuration of Mehldau on piano, Larry Grenadier on bass, and Jorge Rossy on drums.

    In 2005 came the first trio release for Nonesuch—Day Is Done—which featured a new trio with Jeff Ballard replacing Rossy in the drum chair. The trio has since gone on to release another studio album—House on Hill—as well as a quartet album with guitarist Pat Metheny. The trio’s most recent release for Nonesuch is the two-disc album Live, recorded at New York’s famed Village Vanguard, over the course of a week's residency, as well as an exclusive Nonesuch Store MP3-only collection of the complete Friday night sets.
