Wonderwall, Black Hole Sun

Does the words ring a bell to you, guys?

If the first thing that comes across to your mind is Berlin or Astronomy, it is very likely that this posting doesn't fit you :-). You may go on if it's the British band Oasis or, better yet, the Seattle-grunge band Soundgarden that clicks in your mind upon hearing those words. They are the titles of their songs, but that's not what I am referring to.

It's my favorite Brad Mehldau Trio's newest LIve album, recorded in the famous Village Vanguard of New York, in which they played the jazz reinterpretation of those two rock songs. And it's good to hear Mehldau back to the more standard tunes after some not-so-great collaboration with Pat Metheny.

He's indeed cool in rearranging rock songs into jazz, including the Radiohead's piece, Exit Music (for a film), in The Art of Trio Vol.3 and 4, which is also the OST for Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet.


p.s: Hey Manager, play more jazz please.
