First Listen: Mehliana - Taming The Dragon

Our first listen this week is the first offering from versatile pianist and composer Brad Mehldau and formidable drummer Mark Guiliana, called Mehliana: (a combination of both of their names) Taming the Dragon.


This features Brad on vintage synths, fender rhodes, and piano and Mark on drums and  electronics and is officially out on February 25th. There will be a vinyl pressing delivered by Nonesuch Records on March 18th.

The two have been playing together for a couple of years, however this is their debut recording as a duo. 12 original compositions, 6 of which were written by the two as a team, the other 6 by Mehldau alone. 

Prepare for the universe to be somewhat altered,

Your first listen this week is the track “Hungry Ghost”, we can’t wait to the hear the rest.
