我在1996年买了这张CD，当时我还在美国学习。对Brad Mehldau完全陌生的我，但作为一个多年爵士迷的我还是买了这张CD。才倾听十秒钟后我就喜欢上它了。今天，我依然喜爱Brad Mehldau三人组所有的录音。所有的节奏和旋律对我而言依然有那完美的感觉，和那种淡淡的雅致，但又不失新鲜感。听完后我有那种洗完冷水澡感觉焕然一新，像通电了一样，一次又一次。 何不你也来一探究竟！
5.0 out of 5 starsFresh like after a cold shower

Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD in 1996 when I studied in the US. At that time, Brad Mehldau was completely unknown to me but as a jazz fan for many years I just bought the CD. Already after ten seconds of listening I loved it. Today, I love all Brad Mehldau's trio recordings. In all there is this perfect feeling of rhythm and melody, this touch of grace. But this one has a particular freshness. After listening to it my whole beeing feels energized like after a cold shower. Again and again. Check it out!

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
Pianist Brad Mehldau's debut as a leader features his straight-ahead style in trios with either Larry Grenadier or Christian McBride on bass and Jorge Rossy or Brian Blade on drums. The well-rounded set is highlighted by tasteful and swinging versions of five standards (including John Coltrane's "Countdown," "It Might As Well Be Spring," and "From This Moment On") and four of the pianist's originals. This CD (which is sometimes available at a budget price) serves as a fine start to what should be a productive career.
