Marly Music: Jazz Pianist Aaron Diehl

Aaron Diehl toured with Wynton Marsalis as a teenager, and over the last 15 years, has evolved in the jazz world as a musician known for his meticulous touch and makin music that both nods to and expands on foundations laid by past jazz greats.

Aaron Diehl is a classically trained pianist and Juilliard School graduate who, at age 17, toured with Wynton Marsalis, who has famously referred to him as “The Real Diehl.” Over the last 15 years, Diehl has become known in the jazz world for his meticulous touch and for making music that both nods to and expands on foundations laid by past jazz greats. He was the pianist and musical director for legendary jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, and in recent years, played with the New York Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra as featured soloist on George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F.

Diehl served in 2014-2015 as Music Director for Jazz at Lincoln Center’s New Orleans Songbook series; performed in the 2014 New York premiere of Philip Glass’ complete Etudes at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and collaborated with NEA Jazz Master Benny Golson as well as flamenco guitarist Dani De Morón in Flamenco Meets Jazz (produced by Savannah Music Festival and Flamenco Festival). He also served as the inaugural Artistic Director of the Catskill Jazz Factory in Tannersville, N.Y.
