New Yorker Elan Mehler, pianist and star discovery of Radio 1 veteran Gilles Peterson, has released three albums on the Brownswood label; his latest, a co-led project with singer-songwriter Adam McBride-Smith titled Half Seas Over,
is receiving four-star reviews and being hailed as an 'immediate contemporary classic'.
Elan is performing at Brecon with his Brooklyn-based Trio featuring Tod Hedrick and Max Goldman, the core group behind all his recordings. They will be performing originals from all three Brownswood releases as well as brand new material.
‘Intriguing Gilles Peterson piano protégé; Mehler has Jarrett and Mehldau links, but achieves mesmeric effect with a lot more space and a lot fewer notes.’ The Guardian
