Jazz Footprints: Aron Ottignon

From Jazz Footprints, 11:06 pm on 9 July 2014

Pianist Aron Ottignon has a new single Starfish and is set to release his second jazz album later this year. He grew up in Auckland, and if you've been following New Zealand jazz, you may recognise him as the young teen who picked up the award for New Zealand's Most Outstanding Jazz Musician Under 25. Although promising as a jazz player, he lends his hands to all types of music. Now living in Paris he's featured on the huge European hit Papaoutai by Stromae, and is wrapping up a three year world tour with Woodkid at the end of 2014.
