    Brad Mehldau's Finding Gabriel is out now. The album features performances by Mehldau on piano, synthesizers, percussion, Fender Rhodes, and vocals. Guests include Ambrose Akinmusire, Sara Caswell, Kurt Elling, Joel Frahm, Mark Guiliana, Gabriel Kahane, and Becca Stevens. "A soundtrack for our times," says the AP. "[T]he intricate arrangements of wordless vocals are fascinating, and among the singers is Mehldau, who happens to have a lovely voice. Fetching melodies abound ..." The Times of London gives five stars to the latest album from "the American jazz pianist, one of the best alive ... [T]he dominant mood is of a master musician having fun." To coincide with the album's release, Mehldau has shared a video for the track "The Prophet Is a Fool," which you can watch here.
