Brad Mehldau demonstrates his individual style on his first album as a leader, “Introducing Brad Mehldau.” He spices it up by playing the standard tune “It Might as Well Be Spring” in 7/8 with a clave ostinato pattern. Listen how he navigates the odd meter while adding his own flavor to the turnaround at the end of this chorus.
