    Brad Mehldau Launches Mehliana Tour with Drummer Mark Guiliana; Dates to Follow with Chris Thile

    Brad Mehldau launches a month-long, 16-city European tour with Mehliana, his duo project with drummer Mark Guiliana, at the Roma Cultural Center in Atwerp, Belgium, tonight. Mehliana—for which the composer/pianist switches to Fender Rhodes and a battery of synths—then heads to Brussels and continues the tour to the end of March, making stops in Hungary, the Czech Republic, the UK, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, and France. 

    The new tour comes on the heels of another European duo tour for Mehldau, with fellow pianist and longtime friend Kevin Hays, featuring music from their 2011 Nonesuch album with composer/arranger Patrick Zimmerli, Modern Music. Mehldau returns to the United States for a run of duo dates of a different sort, with fellow Nonesuch artist Chris Thile, starting at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on April 9.

    See below for all of the currently scheduled tour dates. For additional details and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    As announced yesterday in the Nonesuch Journal, Mehldau is featured on the forthcoming album from his longtime friend Joshua Redman, Walking Shadows, due May 7. Mehldau also produced the album, which is Redman's first recording to include an orchestral ensemble. Walking Shadows, includes original tunes from both Redman and Mehldau along with works by a wide range of composers like John Mayer and Pino Palladino, Kern and Hammerstein, and Lennon andMcCartney. To pre-order with an instant download of the Redman-penned tune "Final Hour," head to the Nonesuch Store now.
