Maybe it's uncommon to link the creative rush of driving bluegrass to that of jazz, but these distinctly American sounds share a core. Acclaimed mandolinist Chris Thile and pianist Brad Mehldau have built thriving careers in bluegrass and jazz, respectively, and they expound and expand on both with their powerful pairing. They put superhuman improvisational skills to the test on compositions from Bach, Radiohead, Dylan and even themselves. Their instrumental capacity promises a dynamic, thrilling display of musicality. —Ashley Melzer
