Brad Mehldau has created a unique work in Finding Gabriel, one that layers keyboards, singing, singular instrumental voices from an arsenal of guest artists. The sounds on this recording have been chosen, composed, and arranged with great care. There are beauty and grace to the sonic layers that can't be denied. All of which is to say that Finding Gabriel sounds like an ambitious experiment by one of our most creative American musicians. When it works, when the elements are focused together, it stuns and sounds lovingly new. When things aren't quite adding up, the parts are still beautiful or daring, interesting at a minimum. We want to hear more music like this, even if we not eager to listen to all of Finding Gabriel on repeat.
