Product Description

2011 seven CD box set. With the release of The Art Of The Trio, Vol. 1 in 1997, Brad Mehldau solidified his standing as the preeminent pianist of a young generation of rising Jazz musicians and struck out on what would become one of the more notable recording endeavors in Jazz. In the years following, Mehldau, along with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy, released a series of recordings under "The Art Of The Trio" title, culminating with the two-CD The Art Of The Trio, Vol 5: Progression in 2001. As a whole, the series follows not only the growth of the band as a working unit, but also the development of Mehldau's compositional and improvisational voice, tracking his rise from wunderkind to superstar within a matter of years. Now, Nonesuch is reissuing the entire Art Of The Trio series in a box set, bringing all the individual releases together in one package for the first time. The box set also includes The Art Of The Trio: Additional Recordings: 1997-2001, a new CD of never-before-released material.

HASH(0x9f1b7aec) out of 5 stars Sublime! Aug. 18 2012

This collection is a must for any fan of Brad Mehldau. You can hear his growth, and the growing empathy and communication between his trio mates as the recordings move from volume 1 to the end. And the bonus material is truly special - no filler here!

HASH(0x9f076ee8) out of 5 stars Great music - poor packaging Jan. 1 2013
By Philip T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The music by Brad Mehldau is always at its finest. But the packaging by Nonesuch leaves a lot to be desired. Each disc is packaged in its own digi pack sleeve - but that's where the problems start. Each and every disk had a glue resin on the edges from the packaging. I was able to carefully remove the glue from the discs but I would expect better from Nonesuch.

Format: Audio CD
An awesome 7 CD set. Six of the CD's are from "The Art Of The Trio", which if you do not have, makes this box set worth it alone.

The extra CD is unreleased music recorded at the Village Vangaurd. The songs were recorded on different dates. The length of the CD is about 44 minutes. The songs are: Random Blues, Unreuited, Ron's Place, In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning, and Lament for Linus.

One issue, all of the CD are in digi packs. This means each of the CD's could get glue on the them as they are sealed. Easier to scratch, taking them in and out of the digi packs, if you listen to them a lot. I did not feel that this issue would stop me from getting this set or lowering the rating.
