Pianist Aaron Diehl
 Mack Avenue Records has finally committed to a street date for “The Bespoke Man’s Narrative,” jazz pianist Aaron Diehl’s much anticipated studio debut. Diehl signed with Mack Avenue in 2011 after winning the Cole Porter Fellowship in Jazz Competition of the American Pianist Association.

Mack Avenue Records, a Detroit based jazz  record company, founded in 1999 has signed many leading jazz musicians such as Kenny Garrett, Christian McBride, Kevin Eubanks, Sean Jones and Gerald Wilson.

"The Bespoke Man's Narrative" isn't Diehl's first outing as a session leader. He has two live albums on the market “Live at the Players,” and “Live at Caramoor,” He’s the kind of jazz pianist who can switch from sophisticated to grits and gravy easily and who can play any form of jazz adeptly as well as gospel and the blues. 

“The Bespoke Man’s Narrative,” available nationwide March 19th is Diehl's first big label album. Diehl’s fans are hunger for it. Mack Avenue scheduled the album for February 2012 but they delayed i, wanting it to correspond with a national tour. 

On the album, Diehl jams on originals such as “Generation” and “Blue Nude” and a handful of standards “Bess, You is My Woman Now” and “Single Petal of a Rose” with his smoking band Warren Wolf, Dave Wong, and Rodney Green, which is one of the  tightest bands working.
