    Brad Mehldau to Perform on BBC Radio 2's Jamie Cullum Show

    Brad Mehldau, whose new album, Modern Music, is out now on Nonesuch Records, will be the guest on the Jamie Cullum show on BBC Radio 2 this evening. Cullum's show showcases the host's love for all types of jazz, and music rooted in jazz, from its heritage to the future. Mehldau stopped by the BBC Maida Vale Studios in London to perform songs both from Modern Music and his solo CD/DVD Live in Marciac, released earlier this year on Nonesuch. Tune in live today at 7 PM London time, streaming around the world at bbc.co.uk.

    Modern Music is a collaboration between Brad Mehldau and fellow pianist Kevin Hays and composer/arranger Patrick Zimmerli, all longtime friends. The album features pieces written by each of the three musicians as well as works by Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, and Philip Glass, performed by the two pianists in arrangements by Zimmerli. The Guardian calls it a "fascinating session" that's "full of surprises." The New York Times says the pianists bring "a high sheen to some choice material."

    To pick up a copy of Modern Music, Live in Marciac, and all of the albums in Mehldau's Nonesuch catalog, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout. Modern Music is also available there as FLAC lossless files.

    Brad Mehldau will be joined by label mate Joshua Redman for a six-week US duo tour starting next week, October 13, at the Williams Center for the Arts in Easton, Pennsylvania. For details, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
