Earlier this year I listened to Brad Mehldau and Joshuah Redman perform 'Hey Joe', a duet interpretation of Jimi Hendrix's great blues composition. I still get shivers when I remember it. I just downloaded Mehldau's new album Where Do You Start. I am playing 'Hey Joe' from that album on my station. It can't match what I heard, but it gives you a pretty good feel for it. I am also playing 'Holland', an exquisitely pensive meditation. I urge you to get this album. Tell 'em I sent ya.
Meanwhile, Brad, post me a comment. I have been pushing your music for a long time. Push back. And if your are reading, leave me a note. It's lonely here.
