Brad Mehldau Trio Add To The “Wonderwall” Cover Canon, Ryan Adams To Tour With The Guys Who First Recorded That Song

There are a lot of “Wonderwall” covers in this world, but we think the new Brad Mehldau Trio version’s the longest. And maybe the jazziest. It’s from the Trio’s new live album Live, out now on Nonesuch, which is why you’ll hear people clapping at the end. Plus, people just really like that song. (The collection also includes their take on “Black Hole Sun,” another coverable song.) Grab a cocktail…
