    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.

    Mountain Man continues its first US tour in six years this spring with new headlining and festival dates across the south and east, beginning March 16 in Houston. You can watch a new video of Mountain Man performing "Boat" from their new album, Magic Ship, at a recent sold-out hometown show, here. The New Yorker's Amanda Petrusich has named Magic Ship one of the ten best albums of 2018: "It’s heavy with acquired wisdom, and with vocals so haunting they’ll make you shiver."
