2006 Metheny Mehldau

Label: NoneSuch

Musicians: Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau, Larry Grenadier, Jeff Ballard

“This is a dream pairing: Pat Metheny, the Baby Boomer guitar god whose musical palette embraces everything from Ornette Coleman to contemporary jazz, teams with pianist Brad Mehldau, the brooding Gen X prince of the piano on the verge of becoming himself. After admiring each other for years, they’re now on the same label, and this dynamic duel extends their mutual admiration into a very personal and simpatico release that recalls the intimacy of that 1960s Jim Hall/Bill Evans masterpiece, Undercurrent. Save for Mehldau’s bandmates drummer Jeff Ballard and bassist Larry Grenadier forming a quartet on the bop-mazed “Ring of Life” and the Afro-Caribbean cadences of “Say the Brother’s Name” it’s two for the road on the rest of the recording. When you hear selections like “Unrequited,” “Ahmid-6,” and “Make Peace,” you know that this CD is only the start of something big from these two artists.” —Amazon.com
