Howard Assembly Rooms says -
Following his sell out gig here in 2010, Brad Mehldau tours his new project, a brilliant collaboration with drummer/percussionist Mark Guiliana. Mehliana sees Mehldau make a long awaited step into the world of keyboards and synths. He uses all his trademark melodic flair to build a sound that is influenced by 70s funk and dance music, while remaining unmistakeably his own.
Mehldau’s free-ranging harmonies are shot through by the rhythmic dynamism and improvisatory imagination of Guiliana, making music that the world has been waiting for.
