Live chat with Aimee Nolte. 7/22/2017 Performing Impressions [John Coltrane] on piano and scat singing. Enjoy!
I perform as often as I can all around LA and Orange Counties. Most often, I am playing solo piano and singing, but I also perform with my trio, my duo (called Skirt & Suit with Joshua Payne) and also with whoever asks me to join them, whenever they ask!
Some of my favorite local collaborators are Mike Scott, Shane Savala, Bruce Lett, Lyman Medieros, Steve Cotter, Kendall Kay, and I could go on and on.
I love to play and you can always find my gig dates on the “GIGS” tab of this site.
Just 3 hours after meeting Nicki for the first time, we had to perform together as part of the Hilton Head Jazz Camp at great club called The Jazz Corner. I'm so glad to report that the two of us really hit it off and had a blast playing together. I'm sure it won't be the last time. She's absolutely wonderful! Please check http://www.nickiparrott.com and get an album or two! Tasty stuff all around.
Recorded June 27 in Niagara Falls from the hatchback of a Ford in the parking lot of Duffs Famous Wings with my friend, Jason who deserves mad props for doing this in his home town! Ha! I told him I had about 15 minutes to spare while my family ate their chicken wings inside and ordered for me, and he REALLY came prepared. We met in person for the first time in the restaurant, walked out to his car, and threw it down!
Freedom Jazz Dance” is a jazz-rock piece that was composed by Eddie Harris in 1965. The “free” in the title comes from the fact that there’s only one chord, a Bb7, and during your solos you can basically play anything you like over it, going “inside” and “outside” at will.
Gianna's father contacted me and asked if I had room for his daughter to take some lessons. After hearing her play, you'll know why I jumped at the chance. We are having a blast together, and she's working so hard, I just had to share it with you.
Our family vacation is almost over, but I wanted to show you John's Grandpa's farm in Missouri and play a few requests before we leave this beautiful place and wrap up in Kansas City. Don't forget to subscribe to my channel and thanks for watching!
Parked the car. PARKED. Not driving :-) And started singing. It's fun sometimes to just see what comes out. Thanks for watching!
After the absolutely amazing show that Jacob put on, June 21, 2017, I went in search of an interview, and ended up with something far better! Part One of Two. More after hours AMAZING music to follow.
