Aaron Parks has never left us. It's been a while since he has released a major album as a leader, but he's been around. Upon his return to the for in his 2013 ECM debut, Arborescence, he improvised solo, feeling as passionately through his fingertips as always, but it's his new release with the fantastic trio of bassist Ben Street and the powerful force that is drummer Billy Hart that we can really be glad Aaron Parks is back with his new album, Find the Way.

Somehwehere over the course of this last week, while watching the latest video of The Seasons, that I realized Ben Wendel is most certainly my favorite saxophonist this year. It's work like his monthly video series shot by Alex Chaloff wherein Wendel performs duets composed specifically with 12 different musicians inspired by Tchiakovsky's 1876 series of compositions of the same name that is so utterly captivating and attention grabbing. It's an idea true to artistry and with friends like this past month's entry, pianist Aaron Parks, the execution is a mesmerizing cinch. Watch the new video after the jump.

Loved [Aaron Parks]'s Invisible Cinema? Wish you could play his songs? Well, we got his lead sheets! Aaron thought Nextbop would be a cool place to post these, so here you have it!
