Live jazz returns to the Walker this fall with three nationally respected musicians/composers. Dave Douglas on October 7, Brad Mehldau November 5-6, and Jenny Scheinman’s Mischief & Mayhem (featuring Wilco guitarist Nels Cline) December 2. Jazz writer Pamela Espeland called the Mehldau show “the music event I’m most excited about for the rest of the year.” All three promise a trove of sonic riches.
