Today we’re listening to Brad Mehldau, an American jazz pianist. We featured him back in January, and since then he’s released a beautiful solo piano album called Suite: April 2020. In his words, it’s a “a musical snapshot of life the last month in the world in which we’ve all found ourselves.” It includes a dozen original compositions and then beautiful covers of Neil Young’s “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” and Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind.” We’re also re-upping the 2015 compilation of his that captures about 5 hours of solo material including covers of Radiohead, The Beatles, Nirvana, and more.
Have a really good Thursday.
