Savannah Music Festival LIVE 851 – Aaron Diehl Solo, 2016

Aaron Diehl is a 30-year-old jazz pianist whose broad aesthetic palette ranges from ragtime to stride piano to the works of George Gershwin and Phillip Glass. In responding to an interviewer about styles in jazz, Aaron Diehl once stated, “a lot of times we look at jazz in eras, but how can we not keep those eras separate and think of the language as one complete continuum? It’s all interrelated and it’s all evolutionary.” In this episode, we listen to a wide-ranging solo recital given by Aaron Diehl at the 2016 Savannah Music Festival.
