    Brad Mehldau Trio Tours Europe, UK
    Michael Wilson

    Brad Mehldau and his trio—Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums—return to Europe and the UK for a mostly sold-out two week tour, beginning at the beautiful, new Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg tonight. The tour continues with shows in Sweden and Norway, then heads to the UK for dates in Leeds, Manchester, Norwich, London, and Bath, and culminates back in Germany with a set at JazzFest Bonn on May 22. See below for all of the currently scheduled dates or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    The trio’s latest album, Blues and Ballads, was released last year on Nonesuch to critical acclaim. The New York Times called it "beautiful," while MOJO, in its four-star review, called the album a “spellbinding set whose salient features are subtlety and understatement. Sublime stuff." The Times of London writes: "Brad Mehldau is adept at bending almost any music to the will of the jazz tradition" and gets "fairly down and dirty on this sublimely satisfying album."

    Mehldau went on to release Nearness, a duo album with longtime friend saxophonist Joshua Redman, later in the year, and joined another label mate, Chris Thile, for a self-titled duo album earlier this year.

    To pick up a copy of any of these albums, visit the Nonesuch Store.

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
