Brad Mehldau

1970 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Piano

Genres: Jazz, Pop

A gifted jazz pianist and an intriguing thinker, Brad Mehldau has performed in a trio and as a solo artist since the mid-1990s, working as a sideman for Wayne Shorter and John Scofield, as well as recording with Charlie Haden and Lee Konitz, among others. Although he has played with the greats, Mehldau also draws inspiration from the pop-rock stylings of everyone from Paul Simon to Radiohead. The multitalented musician is as comfortable navigating jazz improvisation as he is composing classical song cycles, keeping the buzz that built up around his debut at a constant tremor.
