"A sensational talent in the tradition of Stéphane Grappelli
and Joe Venuti, Mr. Weinstein is an inventive melodic
improviser." New York Times
"If I didn't hear and see him myself, I wouldn't believe it. He's out of sight! He's a genius!" Jon Hendricks, jazz legend
Called "The Groucho of the violin" (Tony Bennett) and "a perfect musician" (jazz guitar legend, Bucky Pizzarelli), New York City Jazz violinist Aaron Weinstein has earned a reputation as one of the finest jazz musicians and entertainers of his generation.
For his London début at The Crazy Coqs, Weinstein will swing the Great American Songbook, while presenting his unique brand of humour for which he's been dubbed "a disciple of Woody Allen" (New York Times) and "the 21st century Jack Benny" (Huffington Post).
As a featured soloist, Weinstein has performed at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Wolftrap Center for the Performing Arts, Birdland, Blue Note, the Iridium, and abroad at jazz festivals in England, France, Switzerland, Iceland, and Israel. Aaron has performed and recorded with an array of jazz icons including Les Paul, Bucky Pizzarelli, John Pizzarelli, Scott Hamilton, Dick Hyman, Dave Fresher, Ken Peplowski, Jon Hendricks and Annie Ross as well as musicians as varied as New York Pops founder/conductor Skitch Henderson and rock guitarist Jay Geils.
Aaron will be accompanied by David Newton on piano.
