#17] Brad Mehldau Trio Day Is Gone
Fusing an interesting
combination of originals and stellar covers, the iconoclastic pianist leads
his trio across a sweeping terrain of sonic splendor. Aside from the title track,
written by Nick Drake, Mehldaus latest CD boasts several pop classics
including The Beatles Shes Leaving Home, Burt Bacharachs
Alfie, and Paul Simons 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.
