Aaron Diehl Trio

One of the nicities of the Jazz Series is seeing the return of well-received artists such as pianist Aaron Diehl. Since he last performed here - in 2013 - The Columbus, Ohio, native, who came to us as the winner of the Cole Porter Fellowship Jazz Competition sponsorsed by the American Pianists Association,  has garnered much attention, rising from a relatively lesser-known talent to an extremely well-respected keyboardist who has gained world-wide recognition.

 

The Jazz Series is  pleased to present Mr. Diehl in a return visit to Murry's, this time leading his newest trio that features bassist Paul Sikivie, who appeared last season as a member of drummer Matt Wilson’s Tree-O, and drummer Lawrence Leathers who makes his first Jazz Series appearance. 

 

Diehl has just-released Space Time Continuum (Mack Avenue; June 2015), which is is a spectacular demonstration of what Diehl brings to the table – we mean keyboard: A grand sense of jazz history; fiendish technical prowess reminiscent of the most fluid of the stride, boogie-woogie and bebop pianists; and what we like to think of as all-around savvy – especially when you take into account that Diehl has just turned 30. He’s simply developed into one of the more delightful pianists performing today.
