Aaron Diehl Trio Aaron Diehl, piano Lawrence Leathers, drums Paul Sikivie, bass “…it’s hard to imagine that Gershwin would not have been impressed. The audience was: It gave Mr. Diehl an enthusiastic ovation. He must be invited back.” — The New York Times Pianist Aaron Diehl is one of the most sought-after jazz virtuosos, consistently playing with what The New York Times describes as “melodic precision, harmonic erudition, and elegant restraint.” Diehl’s meticulously thought-out performances, collaborations, and compositions are a leading force in today’s generation of jazz contemporaries, spearheading a distinct union of traditional and fresh artistry. Recent highlights include serving as music director for the Jazz at Lincoln Center New Orleans Songbook concert series, performing in the New York premiere of Philip Glass’ complete Etudes at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and touring with Grammy®-nominated jazz singer Cécile McLorin Salvant.Back to the event calendar
