Tour de Force

I saw these guys live and there stuff is incredible. After the concert i bought every cd they were selling and could not be more satisfied. Metheny and Mehldau represent the combination of two distinct styles and backgrounds. Brad Mehldau seems to come from avant-garde jazz exploring inside and outside the chord changes creating, at some points, blankets of sound similar to the playing of the late John Coltrane. Pat Metheny brings more of a pop-fusion influence to the group with his multiple guitars and effects. These two master artists brought together with an intense and energetic rythm section have created something that cannot be just simply classified as Jazz.

ehh...a little dissapointing

Before I continue..I'll say that I DO consider myself a pretty large Pat Metheny and Brad Mehldau fan. They both represent the pinnacle of their instrument with regard to improvised music. However, this release has proved extremely dissapointing to me for a number of reasons. One, the compositions seem completely watered down and uninspired, as if Metheny ( all of the compositions seem to maintain a big helping of Metheny-ness...particularly familiar chord progressions..predictable "poppy" melodies..etc) just threw these tunes together because Nonesuch wanted an album just for the sake of it. The second irritating factor to me is that the improvising, particularly Metheny's, lacks the kind of depth and inspiration that it usually always has. I listened to the recording a number of times straight through, and I find that there isnt one truly solid track that I could stand to finish. Overall, not the stellar piece I was hoping for..but you be the judge

Another winner for Metheny and Mehldau

This is a new and fresh recording from the same sessions that brought us the first (mostly duets) album. Some might find that some of the songs are similiar to PMG recordings, minus the lush arrangements, Latin percussion, and occasional vocalese. But listen close and you'll find some significant differences. A couple of tunes feature some little guitar crunches and nuances from Metheny you won't likely hear on the group recordings."A Night Away" starts the disc off right with a groove. "The Sound of Water" seems to use the Pikasso guitar in a way that builds nicely from "Into the Dream" from Imaginary Day. "Fear and Trembling" and "Towards the Light" take some risks, but they pay off. On some tunes, Metheny uses the synth guitar in tasty doses where one might find a good horn solo. Mehldau doesn't just accompany either. He jams along with Metheny as if they have been playing together for 20 years instead the two just admiring each other's playing from a distance as they had. At first I was put off that they put a couple quartet pieces on the first disc and a handful of duets on this one. But both sets work together naturally. Get this one.

Biografía

Brad Mehldau es probablemente el mejor y más influyente pianista de jazz surgido en la década de los noventa. Músico de formación clásica, Mehldau comenzó a interesarse por el jazz en su adolescencia. Tras integrar la banda de Jimmy Cobb y tocar con el Joshua Redman Quartet, en 1994 creó su propio trio y grabó su primer álbum para Warner Bros, Introducing Brad Mehldau.
