JVC’s Piano Jazz

This year’s JVC Jazz festival, taking place in New York City from June 16 to 29, features a stellar lineup of many instrumentalists, but jazz pianists are taking center stage.

On Friday, June 21 at 8 p.m., Brad Mehldau makes his debut at Carnegie Hall. Mehldau’s trio, featuring Larry Grenadier on bass and Jorge Rossy on drums, released Progression, the fifth album in its Art of the Trio series, in September, 2001. The album features the trio performing their own versions of several standards, such as “Long ago and Far Away,” and “How Long Has this Been Going On.” The Carnegie Hall performance will feature songs from the album as well as tracks from Largo, Mehldau’s upcoming CD, released August 13, which features a larger instrumental lineup.
