While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, pianist and composer Brad Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, together with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him personally. The resulting solo album, Suite: April 2020, was first made available in June as a limited-edition deluxe 180-gram vinyl LP and also digitally. One thousand numbered and signed copies were available for $100 from the Nonesuch Store, Bandcamp, and Discogs; a minimum of $90 from each sale will be donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund (after distribution fees). Now the CD and standard vinyl editions are available, and a portion of their sales also will benefit JFA’s Fund.
