Timeless classics are elevated by modern masters when Aaron Diehl and Cécile McLorin Salvant revisit and revitalize the works of jazz piano greats George Gershwin and Jelly Roll Morton. Combining lesser-known works with new arrangements of favorites, Aaron and Cécile’s project celebrates the past while tracing a musical lineage that spans a century.
“[Salvant] has poise, elegance, soul, humor, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth and grace. Yeah.” —Wynton Marsalis
“[Diehl has] …melodic precision, harmonic erudition, and elegant restraint.” —New York Times
