    Suite: April 2020 is a musical snapshot of life the last month in the world in which we've all found ourselves, composed by celebrated jazz pianist Brad Mehldau.

    While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mehldau decided to compose a 12-part suite inspired by the circumstances. "I've tried to portray on the piano some experiences and feelings that are both new and common to many of us," he wrote in a note about the album on his website.

    In addition to the 12 parts of "Suite: April 2020," the album of the same name includes three covers of songs by Neil Young ("Don't Let It Bring You Down"), Billy Joel ("New York State of Mind"), and Jerome Kern ("Look for the Silver Lining").
