    Two New Albums from Brad Mehldau

    Two new records featuring Brad Mehldau's compositions are available today: House on Hill, the final recording from his long-time trio with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossi (Jeff Ballard is the group's current drummer) and Love Sublime, which comprises songs Mehldau wrote specifically for world-renowned operatic soprano Renee Fleming, as part of a Carnegie Hall commission. The New York Times calls House on Hill "a marvel of collective self-assurance, worth hearing not only for Mr. Rossy's weightless time feel but also for Mr. Mehldau's thoughtful compositions," and says Love Sublime is "thoughtful too, sometimes achingly so."

Could you give us some news about the futur Brad Mehldau’CD with Pat Metheny ?

Is there any possibility that the extra songs from the Japanese edition of “Live in Tokyo” could be made available as downloads, either to those who already own the album or ala Frissell’s “Further East/West” album?
