One of my favourite Brad Mehldau albums is still his first Warner album ‘Introducing Brad Mehldau’. He was only 25 when he recorded it and it has a lovely fresh feel without the sometimes overly-cerebral tone of his later albums (brilliant though they are).
This is a transcription of his solo on the opening track and demonstrates the brilliant quick-silver imagination and rhythmic devices that he’d explore further down the line in his career. Enjoy!
