Columbus native Aaron Diehl represents the past, present and future of jazz on the world stage. He is hailed by the New York Times as “a smart young pianist with a fastidious grasp of Jazz traditions.” Diehl, a Columbus Youth Jazz Orchestra alum and the first Hank Marr High School Jazz Award winner, returns to the Lincoln Theatre with his trio in a performance that is uniquely “Columbus” – a celebation of the 25th anniversary of the CYJO. Aaron and his trio will light up this Inside Track showcase, then join an all-star cast of CYJO members and special guests in a show-stopping finale. This pairing of past and present will give you the ultimate glimpse of the next 25 years of The New Jazz Age in Columbus and beyond.
