Jazz: Aaron Diehl Trio

Arthur Bell Auditorium


32-year-old classically trained pianist and composer, Aaron Diehl has made an indelible mark on the jazz world over the last 15 years. Diehl’s style is steeped in the swinging acoustic jazz and classical traditions. A prodigious early talent, he toured with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis' septet at the age of 15 and enrolled in Juilliard's then newly minted jazz studies program. During his time at Juilliard, Diehl studied with several luminaries, including pianists Kenny Barron and Eric Reed.

In 2006, a year before graduating Juilliard, he released his debut album, "Mozart Jazz". The concert album "Live at Caramoor" followed two years later. Diehl then appeared on vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant's highly lauded debut, 2013's "WomanChild" and released his second album as a leader, 2013's "The Bespoke Man's Narrative". In 2015, Diehl releases his third studio album, "Space Time Continuum", which featured saxophonist Benny Golson and others.

“Diehl, a rising star of jazz piano, has an individual talent so huge that one day he may extend the jazz tradition.”
–New York Daily News

"While firmly planted in the present, there’s a timeless quality to the music, hearkening to the panache of pianist Duke Ellington and swing of The Modern Jazz Quartet."

– Mark Turner, All About Jazz
