Jacobs Ladder MP3 Album
Brad Mehldaus album Jacobs Ladder features new music that reflects on scripture and the search for God through music inspired by the prog rock he loved as a young adolescenthis gateway to the fusion that eventually led to his discovery of jazz. Featured musicians on the album include label mates Chris Thile and Ccile McLorin Salvant, as well as Mark Guiliana, Becca Stevens, Joel Frahm, and others. Mojo calls it "a kaleidoscopic affair, where baroque prog-rock edifices are juxtaposed with clouds of ethereal choirs, dreamy piano interludes, and squalls of free jazz-style clarinet. Skillfully weaving these elements into storytelling sound collages, Mehldau takes the listener on a memorable musical journey."
