Invisible Cinema, the hot new Blue Note Records debut by Aaron Parks was just released August 19, 2008, and already critics are raving. The album finds the 24-year old pianist and composer—who is featured in the September issue of JazzTimes as a “New Visionary”—exploring the common ground between his influences: from modern progressive jazz to indie rock and hip-hop. Parks represents a new generation of Jazz musicians, as is evidenced by the fact that he cites bands from Radiohead to Blonde Redhead among his major influences alongside Herbie Hancock, Brad Mehldau, and Terence Blanchard. Parks will be hitting the road this Fall in support of Invisible Cinema.
