7-CD box set conatining all five original Art of the Trio albums (vol. 5 included two CDs), released between 1997 and 2001, plus a seventh disc of previously unreleased material from shows at the Village Vanguard in 1997, 1999, and 2001.

These recordings feature Mehldaus long-time trio with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy. Repertoire includes interpretations of standard tunes and modern classics as well as many original compositions. New liner notes by Bad Plus pianist Ethan Iverson include interviews with all three trio members.

With the release of The Art of the Trio, Vol. 1 in 1997, Brad Mehldau solidified his standing as the preeminent pianist of a young generation of rising jazz musicians and struck out on what would become one of the more notable recording endeavors in jazz.

In the years following, Mehldau, along with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jorge Rossy, released a series of recordings under the Art of the Trio title, culminating with the two-CD The Art of the Trio, Vol 5: Progression in 2001.

As a whole, the series follows not only the growth of the band as a working unit, but also the development of Mehldaus compositional and improvisational voice, tracking his rise from wunderkind to superstar within a matter of years. Now, Nonesuch is reissuing the entire Art of the Trio series in a box set, bringing all the individual releases together in one package for the first time.
