News: Brad Mehldau Trio

Brad Mehldau Trio

    Here is a pretty wild video of a band called the Brad Mehldau Trio. They are an experimental jazzband, but they do alot of really cool covers of different rock songs by artists like Radiohead, The Beatles, Nick Drake, and Paul Simon. So in this video they are doing a cover of the song "Knives Out", by Radiohead. The drummer, (Jeff Balard) plays a ridiculous beat with really original ghost notes thrown carfully all over the place, its just a really impressive and unique beat, he does a great rendition of Phil Selways (drummer of Radiohead) beat from the original song. I'll post the original song "Knives Out" by Radiohead so you can get a better idea of how they're changing the song around.

Ok now here is the Brad Mehldau Trios cover, if you don't want to watch the whole thing, at least skip to around 7:14 of the video because Balard switches up the beat in a really clever way, its worth waiting for.
