All About Jazz has called Aaron Parks “a player and composer of great depth, with a truly cinematic vision.” He comes to Sound It Out @ Greenwich House with a color-rich electro-acoustic quintet, dubbed Little Big. Parks has recorded solo and in collectives for Blue Note, ECM and Nonesuch, collaborating with the likes of Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Gretchen Parlato, among others. BBC Online described Parks as “a master of melody, and a composer and arranger of protean skill and dexterity,” while The New York Times has praised him for being “a step ahead of everyone else.”
