One of today’s most sought after jazz virtuosos, pianist Aaron Diehl consistently plays with what the New York Times describes as “melodic precision, harmonic erudition, and elegant restraint.” Joined by bass player Paul Sikivie and drummer Quincy Davis, Diehl’s meticulously thought-out performances, collaborations, and compositions spearhead a distinct union of traditional and fresh artistry among his generation of jazz contemporaries.
“Mr. Diehl played magnificently…and it’s hard to imagine that Gershwin would not have been impressed.” – New York Times
A pre-performance talk will be given by David D’Angelo, professor in jazz studies at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music. The talk begins at 6:45 p.m. in Ramsey Concert Hall.
