2018 Countdown | Aaron Parks

Aaron Parks refers to his new project - Little Big - as the natural successor to his Blue Note debut, Invisible Cinema. Here we see a prodigal talent doing anything but relying on the norms of the past by bringing electronic sounds, Indie-rock style, and Hip-Hop elements into his music. Little Big is a band; and it is obvious right from the start that while you will hear Aaron’s sublime playing, you will first and foremost hear the band, and therefore the full compositions. It’s a fine line to walk as an artist, player, and composer; that of balancing powerful voices that all wish (and deserve) to be the lead. Aaron Parks Little Big can delight and interest a listener with no ear for the quality within, and it can delight the listener with refined ears.
