Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau 2LP+MP3 BundlePre-order included
Mandolinist/singer Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau, longtime admirers of each other's work, make their duo debut together with a mix of covers and original songs on this double disc. The artists "come from different worlds but the same species," says the New York Times. "Mr. Thile is a progressive-bluegrass pacesetter; Mr. Mehldau is the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years. Both are team players." The Guardian exclaims: "Two very different musicians hit a remarkable rapport on this double album." The vinyl edition includes a bonus performance of Fiona Apple's "Fast As You Can."
