Nov. 20: Aaron Diehl

Nov. 20: Aaron Diehl

The Wayne Theatre presents Aaron Diehl on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $17.

A 32-year-old classically trained pianist and composer, Aaron Diehl has made an indelible mark on the jazz world over the last 15 years. While showing a rare affinity for early jazz and mid-20th century “third-stream” music, his latest evolution comes as he begins to tackle modern classical works.

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.
