The US shows begin with a concert at The Town Hall in New York City on September 13, followed by shows in Wisconsin, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and a set at the Monterey Jazz Festival.

See below for all of the currently scheduled dates or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour (which also includes dates for the newly announced season of A Prairie Home Companion, of which Thile is host).

Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau was released on Nonesuch Records in January. The artists "come from different worlds but the same species," says the New York Times. "Mr. Thile is a progressive-bluegrass pacesetter; Mr. Mehldau is the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years. Both are team players." The Guardian exclaims: "Two very different musicians hit a remarkable rapport on this double album."

To pick up a copy, head to iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where vinyl and CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. It can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

"His open and kind-hearted view of the world and how we should treat each other is something we should forever aspire to," Kronos says of Spinney, and we concur.
