Brad Mehldau – Sky Turning Grey (2010)

“I have [heard his version of Bottle Up & Explode]. It blew me away; I couldn’t believe it. I’ve seen him play once or twice. It was extremely flattering that he found my song interesting enough to play in his show. He heard things in it, some of which I could hear in it but didn’t feel I could do any more than imply because, after all, it’s supposed to be a rock song. He brought out a lot of the implied harmonic things in it, and then added a bunch of stuff that I would have never thought of. And, of course, his technique is a million miles beyond mine. It was incredible. He’s amazing.”

Elliott Smith
