Album Note - Brad Mehldau's 'Highway Rider' | Pop & Hiss | Los Angeles Times

MILES OF TRANE: YES. Joshua Redman on sax is almost enough to sell this one, but the piano man -- who is he? Luckily we don't have to rely on expectations alone as the music comes through fabulously. Brad Mehldau, the guy on piano it turns out, is one of jazz's contemporary, consistent stars, and he shines on this double album release. So lots of music, lots of good music. As expected.
