While exerting an overwhelming influence on 21st century jazz, Brad Mehldau has almost reached the status of “a lone existence”. What will he play now, who delicately resonates with the modern world and makes us forget reality with a breathtakingly detailed euphoria? Great expectations and premonitions that will let you experience the meaning of music again.
Keiichiro Hirano (novelist)
The feeling of listening to the sound of an instrument called a piano disappears immediately.
Love Blues, Love Jazz, Love Rock, Love Classic, Love Music, Love People. I felt like I was glimpsing his life.
Nothing makes me happier than being able to experience the music and expression of Brad Mehldau in the same era.
An overwhelming influence, he and the musicians who inspired him, and us who were influenced by those musicians.
And that sense of generation, I think, is how the history of music is spun. I’m really looking forward to what kind of music is waiting. Kazuki Arai (King Gnu)
A musician who admonishes me without imposing a country or people I don’t know yet, temperature or feelings.
Touching something fleeting and beautiful will give you a sense of purifying everything.
Pure music that seems foolish to be bound by religious views, thoughts and genres.
I can’t make it BGM because I’m always facing the sound that shakes me and reminds me of it.
And I’m happy that there are feelings that can only be experienced from his music.
Seiji Sato (Qururi)
Brad Mehldau’s influence on music is immeasurable.
Especially the history of jazz is clearly divided into before and after his appearance.
His overwhelming personality and supple musicality will inject new life into the hearts of all listeners.
Chihiro Yamanaka (Jazz pianist)
Since his college debut in 1995, pianist Brad Mehldau has quickly become a star player in the jazz research community. At the time, he skillfully manipulated odd time signatures that were unfamiliar at the time, while sharply playing without missing a single moment of the listener’s attention. However, 27 years have passed since then, and what is even more important is that we can still witness with our ears and eyes that his musical imagination is still overflowing.
Most recently, Brad Mehldau came to Japan in May 2019 and performed a trio and solo performance that strongly demonstrated that he is the supreme pianist in the jazz world. Even during the Covid-19 pandemic, his creativity never stopped. A solo piano collection recorded in April 2020 that captures the image of a closed situation, a
jointly-named album with saxophonist Joshua Redman, who seems to reconsider his origins, and a graceful collaboration with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra of New York. With his daring co-stars and Jacob’s Ladder, a bizarre homage to the progressive rock he once loved, he is keen to produce his own work that flexibly expands the jazz style. Here is the endless motivation and creativity of the contemporary jazz pianist. After the period of self-restraint, of course he resumed his energetic live activities. In addition, the long-awaited Japan performance in February will be a solo piano performance, and there will also be a two-day performance with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. With the orchestra, he plans to perform a Mehldau-style piano concerto. From them, we should be able to see the blueprint of today’s artistic expression held by the pianist who leads the jazz world.
Eisuke Sato (Musical Debator)
Brad Mehldau is an exceptional musician who can define the style of today’s jazz pianists. The fresh and free harmony, sense of melody, and fluctuations, which are guided by the novel meshing of the right and left hands, continue to have a great influence on pianists after him. Born in Florida in 1970. Debuted from Warner Bros. in 1995 after studying at The New School in New York. He was soon recognized as a darling of the jazz world, and since 2004’s “Live in Tokyo”, a compilation of solo piano performances in Japan, he has been a member of Nonsuch, which artistically handles everything from classical to rock. . And, as if using his free fingering as a “magic carpet”, he is developing various activities through the golden jazz impulse.
