Enjoy a Jazz on the Avenue performance this Saturday at the King Arts Complex’s Pythian Theatre as Columbus welcomes home pianist Aaron Diehl. Columbus, Ohio’s own Aaron Diehl is the 2011 Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz of the American Pianists Association. Hailed by the New York Times as a “Revelation,” and the Chicago Tribune as “The most promising discovery that Wynton Marsalis has made since Eric Reed,” Aaron Diehl’s distinctive interpretations of the music of Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Art Tatum, Duke Ellington, and other masters pays homage to the tradition while establishing his own original voice.
Cécile McLorin Salvant began singing in the Miami Choral Society at 8. In 2007, Cécile moved to Aix-en-Provence, France, to study law as well as classical and baroque voice at the Darius Milhaud Conservatory. In 2009, after a series of concerts in Paris, she recorded her first album “Cécile”, with Jean-François Bonnel’s Paris Quintet. A year later, she won the Thelonious Monk competition in Washington D.C.
Join the King Arts Complex for Jazz on the Avenue for selections from his repertoire while adding a touch of holiday cheer.
