aerosolo #1: Brad Mehldau

Here everyone agrees: Brad Mehldau is without a doubt one of the most important jazz pianists of the last decades. This is not only due to his refinement of borrowings from pop music; no less formidable colleagues such as Esbjörn Svensson or Ethan Iversson have also done this. No, Mehldau's uniqueness is based on his always contrapuntal playing, in which the hands carry on intimate dialogues or passionate discussions with each other. Here Bach, who is so often the godfather, is really incorporated from the substance for once. Improvised fugati!
