Brad Mehldau Trio
Who said subtlety cant smack you around? The pianist has built a career on making sure nuances walk tall and whispers resound. He and his band are known for perpetually bringing dynamic savvy to the next level, and the fact theyve done so while feeding a youngish audience treats from Radiohead, Oasis, and Soundgarden helps explain why it might be tough to get a seat this week. Hard to beat a mix of killer chops and songbook savvy.
