Contemporary Jazz great Brad Mehldau’s 2022 album Jacob’s Ladder features music inspired by the Prog Rock Mehldau loved as an adolescent.
“The musical conduit on the record is prog,” Mehldau says. “Progressive rock - Rush, Yes, Gentle Giant, and Emerson, Lake and Palmer - was the music of my childhood, before I discovered jazz. It was my gateway to the fusion of Miles Davis, Weather Report, Mahavishnu Orchestra and other groups, which in turn was the gateway to more jazz."
Features unique and beautiful variations on Cogs In Cogs, Tom Sawyer, Würm and more.
