Free Pre-Performance Talk, 6:45 - 7:15 p.m., Weis Center Lobby
Aaron Diehl seeks to stand out in his era as an artist to exemplify quality, authenticity, and a fluency in the American musical vernacular. The 2011 Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association, Diehl has been hailed by the New York Times as "a smart young pianist with a fastidious grasp of jazz traditions." He is committed to unearthing the treasures of a rich musical language through collaborative efforts with artists across generations. In 2002, Diehl was a finalist in Jazz at Lincoln Center's Essentially Ellington competition, where he was awarded "Outstanding Soloist." The following year, he was invited to tour with the Wynton Marsalis Septet on their European tour. A 2007 graduate of the Juilliard School, he is also a Martin E. Segal Award recipient. Diehl released his first live album in 2008, a solo concert recorded at the Caramoor Festival. In 2010, Live at the Players featured two of his working trios. His latest release, The Bespoke Man's Narrative is the current product of Diehl's ensemble cultivation, influenced partly by John Lewis and the Modern Jazz Quartet. He is the 2013 Jazz Journalist Association's Up-And-Coming Musician of the Year Award recipient.
