Editorial Reviews

Nonesuch releases the Brad Mehldau Trio's Where Do You Start, a companion disc to the critically acclaimed Ode. Whereas Ode featured 11 songs composed by Mehldau, Where Do You Start comprises the Trio's interpretations of 10 tunes by other composers, along with one Mehldau original. Ode was widely praised, with London's Daily Telegraph, in a five-star review, saying that it "shows Mehldau's inventive powers are as fresh as ever...and the interplay with Ballard and Grenadier is masterly."

If you want to know where jazz is right now, you need to get this. (No matter that this recording is the product of two sessions, the first recorded in 2008, the second in 2011; this is the Brad Mehldau Trio now.)

In my view, the first four tracks capture what this trio is all about, so I am going to concentrate primarily on them. (I would also like to point out, however, that there isn't a wasted track on this 78-minute recording.)

"Got Me Wrong" is the rock number, and it has groove to burn. There's something subtly subversive about an acoustic trio rocking out. I got into jazz in the 80s because I was tired of rock music, but Brad Mehldau has me re-thinking the wisdom of my choice; he provokes me through sheer example.

"Holland" is an incredibly powerful distillation/transformation of a Sufjan Stevens song. If it's becoming standard for musicians to range widely in the search of new vehicles for jazz (altering our perception of what jazz is in the process), Brad Mehldau forged his own path a long time ago (in the 90s). Others must follow in his wake.

"Brownie Speaks" is on the surface a simple (and also very clever) concept--a not-so-frequently covered Clifford Brown tune played in the key of Monk. But this is precisely where descriptions and categories fail as it is a particularly swinging performance. And as it features solos for both Larry Grenadier (at the beginning) and Jeff Ballard (towards the end), it's also a great place to hear the trio as a unit swinging out in a "traditional" jazz manner.

And then there's "Baby Plays Around." Because I became obsessed with jazz so long ago, I completely missed this Elvis Costello (and Cait O'Riordan) song.

This new album of Brad Mehldau is the perfect pair of "Ode". I don't know why Mehldau don't make a double album with both. The only difference betewn "Ode" and "Where do you start" is that in "Ode" only play his own material an here all the songs are from different compousers. Mehldau, Granadier and Ballard are in a very sweet moment. Is a incredible CD. I personally think that this two albums are the authentic "art of a trio". Mehldau play better a better, with very few notes he sounds incredible, is a authentic master. Here you can find music from Sonny Rollins to Elvis Costello, From Chico Buarque to Johny Mandel, and always is perfect. "Hey Joe" sound simple a beauty," Samba e Amor" is like a poem...only one song from Mehldau, the beautiful "Jam". The Brad Mehldau Trio have class and now are better than ever. If you buy "Ode" you need this one, if you did't have, you must try with this one. Only the version of "Baby plays around" is enough reason to get this incredible album. I'm sure that "Ode" and this"Where do you start" will be one of this records that you can hear for years. Perfect pair.

I have been listening to Brad Mehldau on and off for quite sometime now. I have always admired his playing. But since Larry Grenadier on bass and Jeff Ballard on drums joined forces with Brad, trio playing in harmony and constraint is at its very best. You have here is incredible sound and amazing musicianship. Listen to both "Ode" & "Where do you start" in sequence. The trio has hit it out of the ballpark! Highly Recommended.

In many ways one of his best- the trio is like a single voice. All the best things about Mehldau's playing are here without the sometimes meandering bits. I like the meandering bits sometimes, but it's nice to have more compact playing. The title track is perfection.

Brad Mehldau's latest is becoming my favorite of his albums (and I have em all!). The playing is consistently top caliber, but I love the program the trio has presented in this album. Mehldau's solo on Samba E Amour is otherworldly... one of his most astounding and certainly one of my favorites. If you're a Mehldau fan, this is an essential album for your library. Not to be missed!

Several of Brad Mehldau's early recordings (Introducing, Art of the Trio 1, and Art of the Trio 3) were spectacular, but his subsequent recordings did not reach those heights, and I had almost given up. But this is in the same league with his early work; interesting, complex, and cerebral, yet also beautiful and melodic. Strongly recommended.

Brads style is instantly recognizable and always original, and his take on contemporary pop tunes, many of which are unfamiliar to me, make me reconsider their worthiness.
