  • A collaboration between pianists Brad Mehldau and Kevin Hays and composer/arranger Patrick Zimmerli, all longtime friends, Modern Music features pieces written by each of the three musicians as well as works by Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, and Philip Glass, performed by the two pianists in arrangements by Zimmerli. The Guardian calls it a "fascinating session" that's "full of surprises." The New York Times says the pianists bring "a high sheen to some choice material."

  • This two CD, one DVD live album captures a solo performance by Mehldau at the 2006 Jazz in Marciac festival in France and includes original tunes by Mehldau as well as interpretations of songs by Kurt Cobain, Lennon/McCartney, Cole Porter, Radiohead, and others. MOJO says it's "spellbinding," exclaiming that Mehldau's "technical command of the keyboard is utterly awe-inspiring." The Financial Times finds it "enthralling." The Independent calls it "a triumph of imagination and structure. Quite simply, he's on fire, inspired, out there, playing with the gods."

  • This double-disc of original work by Mehldau reunites the pianist/composer with producer Jon Brion for the first time since Largo. Featured are performances by Mehldau’s trio, drummer Matt Chamberlain, saxophonist Joshua Redman, and a chamber orchestra, with orchestrations by Mehldau. The New York Times calls it "his grandest effort yet" joining classical and jazz. The Guardian says it's "the real deal." Nonesuch Store orders include an exclusive bonus demo MP3 Mehldau made for Brion.

  • Mehldau’s rhythm section appears on these expansive tracks from the landmark 2005 Metheny/Mehldau sessions. Says the Washington Post, “[Larry] Grenadier and [Jeff] Ballard provide a rhythmic grounding that seems to focus the two leaders into more sharply shaped phrases.”

  • This 2005 studio encounter between Mehldau and Metheny “represents a triumph of risk-taking” (Philadelphia Inquirer). “No ego, no competition,” declares the BBC. “Just a sublime understanding of each other’s skills that produced one of the albums of the year.”

  • This Mehldau-composed, Carnegie Hall–commissioned song cycle ponders Rainer Marie Rilke’s early poetry. The New York Times says, "it succeeds handsomely as a showcase for Ms. Fleming, and as an example of Mr. Mehldau's deft calibration of pretense and personality."

  • Mehldau interprets Gershwin, Monk, Nick Drake, and Radiohead. The Philadelphia Inquirer declares, “Mehldau shows more than awesome technique on this heartfelt romp ... He dives deep like Keith Jarrett and comes out in unexpected places like an explorer.”

  • Mehldau and producer Jon Brion (Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann) experiment with electronic instrumentation on these original and borrowed tunes. The Boston Globe raves, "Gorgeous and brilliant ... Mehldau has crafted a new-jazz soundscape that bursts with pop smarts."
