Ode is a contemporary jazz album by American pianist Brad Mehldau. It features Mehldau's regular trio partners, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard.
Jazz pianist/composer Brad Mehldau teams up with his original trio for a stunning exercise in cool, calculated synergy on 2012’s Ode, their first full studio LP since 2005’s Day Is Done. Mehldau is the melodic and spiritual center here; on tracks like Ode and Kurt Vibe, he blends a Bill Evans-style close-to-the-chest harmonic emphasis with free-floating, single-line solos that travel in and out of those harmonies with incredible nonchalance. Drummer Jeff Ballard offers rhythmically possessed playing ( . that finds its own cadence. Ode Brad Mehldau Trio.
