In listening to the five years of the Brad Mehldau Trio represented in this box set, one hears the unfolding of a new and significant part of modern jazz history, as the end of the 1990s opened the door on the explosive creative renaissance of the music in the 21st century. Nonesuch has compiled the five releases in the Art of the Trio series, as well as an additional disc of unreleased recordings from the same period (1997-2001), offering a serious reconsideration of what has already been accepted as a "next step" for the jazz piano trio's history. On Vol. 1, Mehldau, bassist Larry Grenadier, and Spanish drummer Jorge Rossy intriguingly and seductively begin uttering the first sounds of their new language via Mehldau's originals, such as "Lament for Linus" and "Ron's Place." By 1998's Vol. 2: Live at the Village Vanguard, it's firmly in place: Mehldau is extremely impressive in the encore where he offers a wild, independently moving two-hand improvisation on John Coltrane's "Countdown." As importantly, Grenadier and Rossy don't react to him so much as anticipate and lift off; they find their own rhythmic wavelength, yet never forsake the pianist's invention. Grenadier's imaginative yet rhythmically firm melodic statements help to create a time stretch that Rossy completes by using his cymbals in counterpoint to his snare and hi-hat. The pair sync, then open space, but there is little space between them, and the pianist -- with his intense engagement with and reaction to them -- builds a harmonic, often melodic bridge. Together they bridge the gap between the sound of time and its elasticity, and the oblivion of empty space. On Vol. 3: Songs, another studio date, Mehldau's gorgeous arrangement of Nick Drake's "River Man" and Radiohead's "Exit Music (For a Film)" open up jazz's fakebook, insisting on developing (more) contemporary tunes as "standards." Want evidence Look at the number of jazz musicians who have followed him since. It also gave listeners a wider portrait of Mehldau as a composer in his own classically influenced compositions -- "The Folks Who Live on the Hill" and "Song-Song."
