my new addiction

Pianist Brad Mehldau. What a cat! At first his songs seem like nice, smooth piano jazz, but then they start to turn wild and go free, and then come back together neatly and finish like nothing ever happened. I'd heard him a few times on the only radio station I can even tolerate, KCSM. Then Sanjay, percussionist for the Eggplant Casino, played one of Mehldau's Radiohead covers - Everything In It's Right Place - for us in the car after rehearsal, and I've been pretty much hooked ever since.

Here are three songs for you to hear, including another Radiohead re-do.
