Biografie

Brad Mehldau (* 23. August 1970 in Jacksonville, Florida) ist ein US-amerikanischer Jazzpianist.

Bereits im Alter von sechs Jahren begann er, Klavierstunden zu nehmen. Er studierte Klavier und Komposition am Berklee College of Music und an der New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music. Unter seinen Lehrern waren Kenny Werner, Junior Mance und Fred Hersch, der den wohl größten Einfluss auf Brad Mehldau ausübte.

1994 war Brad Mehldau Mitglied des Ensembles der Europa-Tournee des Joshua Redman Quartet: Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Chris McBride und Brian Blade. Da diese Tournee ihn erstmals einem internationalen Publikum vorstellte, kann man durchaus sagen, dass seine Karriere hiermit begann. Im Folgejahr, 1995, gründete er das Brad Mehldau Trio zusammen mit Larry Grenadier (b) und Jorge Rossy (dr), deren erstes Album „Introducing Brad Mehldau“ noch im gleichen Jahr viel Lob erntete.

Die hauptsächlichen Einflüsse in Mehldaus Musik kommen von Franz Schubert genauso wie von Oscar Peterson und Keith Jarrett - aber auch von Miles Davis, John Coltrane. Seine Art des Klavierspiels wird häufig mit der von Bill Evans verglichen, selbst wenn es - auch nach eigenen Aussagen Mehldaus; vgl. Linernotes zu „The Art of the Trio IV“ - bedeutende Unterschiede in der musikalischen Konzeption gibt. Mehldau integriert in sein Repertoire neben Eigenkompositionen und Jazz-Standards auch auf den ersten Blick jazzferne Musik, so z.B. von der Alternative-Band Radiohead oder vom Folksänger Nick Drake sowie von den Beatles.

    eh, Kraftwerk's achievements are mostly conceptual and based on pioneering new media. As far as Musicianship I think both Brad and Radiohead far outshine any Kraftwerk that I have heard, as they do in listenablity, but that last one is a personal preference. To me they represent the kind of post modern philosophy that made art indecipherable to people without a BFA degree, and ultimately boring to those who hold one but still value formalism enough to enjoy Rachmaninoff, Prokfiev, and Bartok, despite their opposing sides of a silly ideological fence. I think there is enough math in music to say it is not entirely subjective though. As for Brad's music? no it isn't jazz proper. But neither was Coltrane for at least half (some people would say all) of his career. Not that ANYONE can ever be compared to Coltrane, but I think that Brad makes music that is interesting enough for me to be engaged by it, and sometimes it sounds more like jazz than others. it's always interesting though.

    Every view on everything is individual; completely and utterly subjective. This is why one cannot say that Brad Mehldau is better than Radiohead or the other way around. You cannot say that Brad Mehldau doesn't play proper jazz only ment for "people who don't like jazz". I would not agree. In my world they are a what I hear a day I couldn't really stand either rock or jazz. Middleway-music. But that's just what I think.

    When an artist does a cover of a song it is meant to give listener's a new perspective of the track, it shows what the song is capable of. Brad Mehldau does just that, he reveals the song from a Jazz perspective and god, he does it well. Like what's been said before, Mehldau is the Jazz equivalent to Radiohead therefore he has earnt the right to a fantastic cover. It bends and twist and stretches the song to its maximum capability and I don't think anyone can complain at someone with such talent to do so. I love it.

    They play different kind of music... Radiohead is a great rock band and Brad Mehldau is a great jazz musician... i don't think one could be greater than the other.... However, there are people who stand that Radiohead is bigger than KRAFTWERK! I don't agree with that at all haha... Kraftwerk is to electronic music the same as The Beatles to rock music... that's it...

    Comparing Brad to Radiohead is only offensive to Radiohead. On the other hand, the word "creative" does n´t fit very well. Every note he ever played is common ground. Jazz for people who can´t stand jazz.
