Brad Mehldau, Kevin Hays: Modern Music

"In the era when Smoke was Augie’s — a student hangout, invariably full of actual smoke — Mr. Mehldau was one of its habitués. He makes his return as an improvising pianist of exalted stature, whether he’s working with his trio (as at a recent Village Vanguard run), in a piano-duo format (as on his most recent Nonesuch release, 'Modern Music'), or in a duo with the drummer Mark Giuliana" (Nate Chinen, "Jazz Listings," New York Times, 2/2/12).
