If there is already a thread about this, then I apologize for repetition. This CD is absolutely ridiculous. Jeff Ballard is a sick drummer, Mehldau goes without saying, and Larry Grenadier I find to be very impressive. Everything feels so open... I find myself wanting to compare Mehldau's trio to what Bill Evans did, but it's so different and modern also. Some elements of their sound also remind me of the Dave Holland album "Extended Play." I cannot stop listening to Mehldau's conception of "Fifty Ways To Leave Your Lover." The trio achieves an unbelievably smooth 7/4 feel. Grenadier and especially Ballard are rock solid but very loose as well (don't mean to contradict). A CD well worth grabbing.
