Acclaimed jazz pianist Aaron Diehl has toured with icons like Wynton Marsalis and rising stars like C��cile McLorin Salvant and has established himself as a sought-after virtuoso in his own right. Diehl's tapped drummer Pete Van Nostrand and bassist Yasushi Nakamura to join him at D.C.'s Atlas Performing Arts Center to perform pieces from his 2015 album Space Time Continuum, which The New York Times dubbed "superior" and "jubilant." You'll also hear the trio play other original compositions and standards. Be prepared to pick Diehl's brain about his craft because this performance is part of the Riffin': CapitalBop Listening Sessions. The series features pre-show conversations between jazz artists and fans where talk turns to inspirations, aspirations and the future of the genre.
There will be a pre-show conversation with the artists hosted by CapitalBop���s Giovanni Russonello and Luke Stewart.
