MEHLIANA featuring Brad Mehldau and Mark Guiliana

World-renowned pianist Brad Mehldau switches to Fender Rhodes and an arsenal of vintage synthesizers to partner up with acclaimed drummer Mark Guiliana in their brand new electro-funk Mehliana project.

Trance-laden, free-form and majestic, Mehliana touches on the modern electro-beats found in dance clubs today and nods back to the more free dance-funk spirit of the early ‘70s.

Known for his thrilling, unconventional cello playing, Kentucky-based singer-songwriter Ben Sollee possesses a knack for inventive, intricate arrangements. After Sollee and his band recently played the season finale of Lincoln Center’s American Songbook, The New York Times raved, “their meticulous, fluent arrangements continually morphed from one thing to another. Appalachian mountain music gave way to the blues, and one song was appended with a fragment from a Bach cello suite, beautifully played."
