American pianist/composer Aaron Parks released his Blue Note debut Invisible Cinema at the age of 25 following three Blue Note releases with trumpeter Terence Blanchard. The BBC declared it ‘one of the great albums of 2008’ and JazzTimes hailed him as ‘a new visionary.’ Little Big, his new band, could be seen as a continuation of the trajectory set on Invisible Cinema, with a deeper commitment to melodic songwriting, modern rhythms, and immersive storytelling. With band members bringing their experiences not only from jazz and improvised music but also electronica, R&B, indie pop, alt-country, and much more, this is genre-fluid music which creates a world of its own. The album Aaron Parks Little Big will be released this fall. Aaron Parks has performed and recorded with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Dhafer Youssef, Terri Lyne Carrington, Ambrose Akinmusire, Gretchen Parlato, Kendrick Scott, and Marcus Miller, among others. He has released two albums on ECM including a solo piano album and a trio record featuring Billy Hart and Ben Street. He is also a founding member of James Farm with Joshua Redman, Matt Penman and Eric Harland.
