Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau is an album by Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau. It was released by Nonesuch Records on January 27, 2017. Mandolinist and vocalist Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau first played together in 2011 when Mehldau had a residency at London's Wigmore Hall. Their first tour as a duo was two years later. They performed together again in 2015, after which they recorded this studio album.

I look at that deep well I look at that dark gray Ringing that iron bell In Scarlet Town today. So fare thee well, my own true love If you ever see me around I'll be looking through a telescope From hell to Scarlet Town

Simply put, Thile and Mehldau deliver a set of deeply engaging, organically realized songs that perfectly balance their respective jazz and bluegrass skills. Given that they seemingly come from polar ends of the musical spectrum, the collaboration may feel like an odd choice at first. However, after hearing this debut, one might be hard-pressed to imagine a more compatible duo to emerge from their generation than these two distinctive mavericks.

Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau come from different worlds but the same species," says the New York Times. Mr. Thile "is a s pacesetter; Mr. Mehldau is the most influential jazz pianist of the last 20 years. Both are team players. Both love Bach and the Beatles, and both have developed fan bases bigger and broader (and younger) than their genre silos can accommodate. Nonesuch Records labelmates mandolinist/singer Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau, longtime admirers of each other's work, first toured as a duo in 2013.

Chris Thile sounds punchdrunk. The mandolin player’s voice is bleary as he explains the inspiration behind Noise Machine, a track on a new album of duets he has recorded with the jazz pianist Brad Mehldau. Despite its title, Noise Machine is not a wild, atonal improvisation, but a gentle lullaby about the demands of practising the mandolin very quietly in a tiny New York apartment. A real revelation. rad Mehldau, left, and Chris Thile.
