Brad Mehldau and Chris Thile at The Falcon

This is definitely our pick for the not-to-be-missed show this month. Pianist Mehldau and mandolin player Thile (who will be taking over hosting duties from Garrison Keillor on "Prairie Home Companion" next year) bring pop allure and sensibility to their jazz explorations, from Bach to Dylan to Radiohead. Expect an improvisatory journey through a few centuries of music, gilded in exquisite technique and grounded in crowd-pleasing hooks. They'll be packing them in at The Falcon in Marlboro on December 29. (845) 236-7970; Liveatthefalcon.com
