Mehldau explains, 'We are born close to God, and as we mature, we invariably move further and further away from Him on account of our ego. 'Jacob's Ladder' begins at that place closer to God with the voice of child, and then moves into the world of action. God is always there, but in our discovery and conquest, and all the joys and sorrows they bring, we may lose sight of him.

He sets a ladder before us though, like in Jacob's dream, and we climb towards him, to find reconciliation with ourselves, to stitch up all those worldly wounds and finally heal. The record ends with my vision of heaven - once again as a child, His child, in eternal grace, in ecstasy'.
