Aaron Diehl Trio: Virtuoso at Play at Baruch Performing Arts Center

Baruch Performing Arts Center presented Aaron Diehl Trio Virtuoso at Play on Thursday, March 28, 2019 as part of the Milt Hinton Jazz Perspectives Series. The trio, with Aaron Diehl, piano,
Aaron Kimmel, drums, and David Wong, bass, performed music from Space, Time, Continuum. This is Diehl’s second album and it emphasizes the artistic collaborations between generations. They also previewed music from his upcoming new album.

Aaron Diehl, the classically trained pianist and composer, has made an indelible mark on the jazz world, with a rare affinity for early jazz, mid-20th century “third-stream” music, and modern classical works. Diehl is one of the most sought after jazz virtuosos. His 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.
