While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic, BradMehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, together with tunes by Neil Young, Billy Joel, and Jerome Kern that mean a great deal to him, for this album, Suite: April 2020. "Suite: April 2020 is a musical snapshot of life [at the time] in the world in which we've all found ourselves," Mehldau says. "I've tried to portray on the piano some experiences and feelings that are both new and common to many of us." This 180-gram deluxe vinyl edition is limited to 1,000 numbered units, signed by Mehldau, with 100% of the $100 price going to the Jazz Foundation of America's COVID-19 Musician's Emergency Fund.

Package designer Barbara deWilde also donated her services. Ships from Denmark; no returns.
