Savannah Music Festival: Aaron Diehl Quartet

Airs Thursday, May 21, at 8 p.m. When pianist and composer John Lewis formed the Modern Jazz Quartet in the early 1950s, he established an almost classical sounding chamber music ensemble by devising an approach that evenly distributed improvisation inside of compositions distinctly arranged for piano, vibraphone, bass and drums. In this episode, we listen to pianist Aaron Diehl playing the music of MJQ at the 2013 Savannah Music Festival, alongside Warren Wolf on vibraphone, David Wong on bass, and Rodney Green on drums.
