By Dean Truitt

Anything Goes

It has been two years since pianist Brad Mehldau’s last studio release. While Largo was very much about the collaboration of Mehldau with producer Jon Brion, Mehldau’s newest installment comes as a return to the trio sound. Anything Goes again finds Mehldau with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy. The three jazzmen have captured a truly visceral group sound, while retaining a high level of smart interplay.
