Brad Mehldau to tour UK in February

There's a chance in early 2006 to hear the Brad Mehldau Trio in action with a major seven date tour. Day Is Done, the trio's most recent album, scored highly in the recent Jazzwise Albums Of The Year poll, and it's the first time the American pianist has brought the trio with new drummer Jeff Ballard on board to the UK. The dates are Turner Sims, Southampton (7 Feb 06), Poole, Lighthouse (9 Feb 06), Barbican, London (13 Feb 06), Sage, Gateshead (14 Feb 06), RNCM, Manchester (15 Feb 06) and St George's Bristol (16 Feb 06).
