Brad Mehldau – Live at the Barbican 2017

Last night I went to see the Brad Mehldau Trio play live at the Barbican. They were absolutely incredible, all three were on top form, they played three encores and the crowd were fantastic. The audience all knew that they were witnessing three of the best musicians come toegther to play some of the most exciting, technical music out there, and there was no doubt that the Trio excelled. I think Brad Mehldau is one of the most talented Jazz pianists to hit the stage and is a close rival to the man at the top – “Keith Jarrett”. Nevertheless, Mehldau has very much his own distinct style and is partial to a few interpretative covers of more modern type music; e.g. Radio Head, Massive Attack, and the Verve, which I think stand him out to being one of today’s more inventive artists. To sum up, last night was a hugely enjoyable evening and I give this concert a 5-Star review. *****
