Copyright violation[edit]

I've just deleted/restored to remove the previous copyright violation. Even if it wasn't a copyvio (which it clearly was), it's not good form to simply replace the whole article with something else. --ajn (talk) 07:11, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Citation needed[edit]

Looks like someone wrote that Mehldau has Asperger's. While this is certainly possible, seems like we should have a citation, or we should take it out. Anyone able to find one? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:18, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

In addition, the citation to Mehldau playing with "Jackie McLean, Nipsey Russell and Jimmy Cobb" no longer works. Nipsey Russell? While entirely plausible, an updated citation is needed. Otherwise, yank it.

List of albums and songs[edit]

Is the discography (and songs) listed here because pages for the albums need to be created or for some other reason? 22:08, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

  • It is commonplace on Wikipedia musician articles to list albums released, but not for songs. I have removed the track listings and left the albums. --cholmes75 (chit chat) 16:21, 9 July 2007 (UTC)


Sorry about the odd edits here. I've been trying to figure out how to add a reasonably sized photo to the page. I uploaded bradmehldau-publicity page.jpg from but then, when I tried to add it, I found that it was about the size of Kansas and that seems too large. If anyone knows how to do it for me, that would be cool. Thanks. Bgfay 18:36, 11 July 2007 (UTC)Bgfay

Mention of John Mayer in Biography[edit]

I feel it is unnecessary to mention the set performed with John Mayer. Throughout Mehldau's career, he has performed with musicians that are far more notable than Mayer. Why single out Mayer? Because he is a pop icon? I've removed it. If the general consensus is that it belongs there then by all means add it back.

Here is the text for reference:

In August 2010 Mehldau joined John Mayer on stage at the Hollywood Bowl for a short duo set. Their set included "Bittersweet Symphony", "Can't Find My Way Home", "Going To California", and "The Wind Cries Mary". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sib301 (talkcontribs) 16:08, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
