The dozen tracks on this double-disc set, produced by Mehldau, were recorded at the Village Vanguard over four evenings, from October 11 to October 15, 2006.
Brad Mehldau Trio Live opens with a cover of "Wonderwall, " from the nineties Brit-pop band Oasis, and concludes with a rendition of John Coltrane's "Countdown." in between, Mehldau and his cohorts radically and elegantly reinterpret bossa nova (Chico Buarque's "O Que Sera"), Seattle grunge (Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun") and Tin Pan Alley (the 1929 classic "More Than You, " featured in Barbra Streisand's Funny Lady). The trio also offers it's own version of Mehldau's "Secret Beach, " which first appeared on Metheny /Mehldau Quartet.
