“Together, [Diehl and Salvant] riff like a pair of old souls who came together after years.” NPR
Timeless classics will become modern masterpieces when two of today’s hottest young jazz musicians – pianist Aaron Diehl and vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant – revitalize works from piano greats George Gershwin and Jelly Roll Morton. Diehl’s “melodic precision, harmonic erudition and elegant restraint” (The New York Times) have made him a leading force among his generation of jazz contemporaries, spearheading a distinct union of traditional and fresh artistry. Salvant, “the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade” (The New York Times), returns as a Santa Barbara favorite to lend her impeccable vocal stylings to iconic works from the past century.
