Modern Music is an album by pianists Brad Mehldau and Kevin Hays. The three protagonists for the album – composer and arranger Patrick Zimmerli, and pianists Brad Mehldau and Kevin Hays – were friends. Mehldau was already known for mixing elements from forms of music other than jazz into his performances, and Hays had more recently extended "from his signature, intelligent, hard swinging post-bop approach to include compositions with modern classical touches".

Modern Music, the collaborative recording between longtime colleagues and jazz pianists Brad Mehldau and Kevin Hays, and composer and arranger Patrick Zimmerli (a mutual friend of both) is startling for its deep reliance on modern classical technique and arrangements. Certainly, Mehldau is known for dabbling in all sorts of music, from pop to classical on his recordings and in live performance

Zimmerli’s own title track also has a certain Reichian charm, with its propulsive central rhythmic ostinato. Throughout the album, there are remarkably deft fusions of features from the jazz and classical worlds. Hays’ Elegia, for example, is characterised by affecting, weaving melodies executed with a fantastic lightness of touch. Yet there is also some bold and exciting improvisation around his themes which incorporate interesting chromaticism. The improvised lines from Mehldau and Hays are breathtakingly intricate. Mehldau has spoken of how Zimmerli’s involvement took both pianists away from their comfort zones, sometimes requiring them to play written parts whilst improvising at the same time. There is certainly an intensity and density to some of this music, perhaps an inevitable consequence of two virtuoso pianists improvising together.
