Ode (Number 19)

Here’s a pretty song by Brad Mehldau.  As is usual with his compositions, the exact harmonies and rhythms are up to interpretation.  I feel like Brad’s melodies revolve around fluid tonalities rather than chord structures: often he will play a dissonant note over a triad and make it sound perfectly logical.  Good examples of this can be found here (and even more so in another chart on this site, “Schloss Elmau”)
