Brad Mehldau to tour the UK 2013
Pianist Brad Mehldau brings two new projects to the UK in early 2013
Brad Mehldau tours the UK with Kevin Hays and separately as part of new project Mehliana in 2013.
The Connecticut-born pianist and composer, best known for his trio reworkings of modern jazz standards and covers of Radiohead and other pop music, will first play the Manchester Royal Northern College of Music on 14 February 2013. For this concert he pairs up with fellow pianist Kevin Hays to explore classical and jazz-related music from composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Hays and Mehldau then move on to Birmingham Town Hall on 21 February.
Mehldau then teams up with drummer Mark Guiliana as part of his new jazz improvisation project, Mehliana. Mehliana play first at the Village Underground, London on 11 March and then at the Howard Assembly Room, Leeds on 13 March. Without set compositions, these concerts will be all about improvisation with a touch of drum 'n' bass.
