“Diehl gracefully melds two worlds, merging the improvisational spirit of jazz with the compositional intricacies of Western classical music.”
Pianist and composer Aaron Diehl mystifies listeners with his layered artistry. At once temporal and ethereal, his expression transforms the piano into an orchestral vessel in the spirit of beloved predecessors Ahmad Jamal, Erroll Garner and Jelly Roll Morton. His forthcoming solo record promises an expansion of that exploration in a setting at once unbound and intimate. Aaron conjures three-dimensional expansion of melody, counterpoint and movement through time.
