Mehldau, away from his own records, is free simply to play excellent piano which he does on PERICO SAMBEAT's, Friendship.    Sambeat is a Spaniard who might have been listening to Cannonball Adderley in his cradle days. His signature, steely ferocity on alto offers a productively tart contrast to Mehldau’s rhapsodic invention, and with another crack New York team on hand – including that fascinating guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel – this is an often riveting sequence of originals: listen to how much they tease out of the shifting tonalities of ‘Orbis’.
