Please note that this is not a seated event.
World renowned pianist Brad Mehldau switches to Fender Rhodes and a battery of vintage synths to partner up with acclaimed drummer Mark Gulliana in a brand new collaboration whose rare US club shows have generated a massive online buzz. Playing without set compositions, this is quintessential Brad and Mark that takes in free improve, forays into drum’n’bass, and a nod back to the dance-funk spirit of the early 70s.
The unmistakable harmony and melodicism of Brad Mehldau played through electric keyboards enveloped by Guiliana’s virtuosic rhythmic drive – is nothing short of what a triumph; two of the world’s most refreshing instrumentalists humanising live electronic music with improvisation and deft ability.
Support comes from Oren Marshall will be doing a solo-electric Oren-o-phone set.
