    Philadelphia Inquirer: Mehldau Grooves on Trio "Live" CDs

    The Brad Mehldau Trio's two-disc Live album receives three and a half stars from the Philadelphia Inquirer. Reviewer Karl Stark writes:

    It is way cool to follow the flights of pianist Brad Mehldau and his trio on this live two-disc recording. Laboring over six nights at New York's fabled Village Vanguard in October 2006, Mehldau proves he can weave a groove as well as anyone. It's satisfying to hear him pick intense lines in some remote corner of a long tune or pile on one note repeatedly, because his rhythmic drive is so strong.

    Brad is set to perform a number of solo shows over the next couple of weeks, including one at the Annenberg Center's Zellerbach Theatre, in Philadelphia, this Sunday. For more tour information, click here.

    Robert Plant's new album, Carry Fire, is out now. As with his 2014 album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, it features his band The Sensational Space Shifters. They are also joined here by special guests, including Chrissie Hynde. NPR calls the album "transfixing ... rivetingly intimate." The New York Times calls it "a swirling mix of deep blues, mountain music, North African rhythms and Zeppelin-heavy weight." The AP says: "There are few undisputed rock stars this accomplished still taking musical risks. Plant’s songwriting remains a class above ... 'Out here the fire's still burning / So long into my night,' he sings. Long may it burn."

    The award-winning French singer and composer Camille's fifth studio album, OUÏ, is out now in the US on Nonesuch. Recorded over a year in La Chartreuse, a 14th-century monastery-turned-artist's residence in Avignon, OUÏ features folk music, hymns, ballads, pop, lullabies, and a cappella, with Camille on all vocal parts and all but one song in French. "A Parisian pop genius," says Pitchfork. "OUÏ is rich with brilliant, funny ideas about conception, nature, and identity, with plenty of pure pleasure hits for non-Francophones." Camille performs an intimate album-release show at (Le) Poisson Rouge in NYC on Monday, October 16.
