Metheny/Mehldau is a jazz album released in 2006 by Nonesuch Records. Most of the album is a duet between guitarist Pat Metheny and pianist Brad Mehldau. On two songs, they are accompanied by drummer Jeff Ballard and bassist Larry Grenadier.


Mehldau wrote three songs, while Metheny wrote the rest. "Unrequited" appeared on Mehldau's album, Songs: The Art of the Trio, Vol. III (1998). Metheny's "Say the Brother's Name" is from I Can See Your House from Here (1994), an album he made with guitarist John Scofield. "Ahmid-6" was recorded by Bob Berg on his album Riddles (1994) .[3]

Metheny/Mehldau includes recordings from the first recording session. A second disc, Metheny/Mehldau Quartet, was released in 2007 and contains more quartet and duet tracks.
