Rapidly rising Jazz pianist Aaron Parks' Blue Note Records debut Invisible Cinema hits stores this week; the whole album is available to stream now at AOL.

Invisible Cinema is a stunning concept record conceived entirely by the 24-year- old, and with his technically involved, melodic and sensitive playing, Parks is setting a new standard for Jazz piano expression. Available now, Invisible Cinema is an acoustic jazz record that evokes sonic and rhythmic frontiers through the use of subtly added keyboards, meticulously varied guitar sounds and unorthodox beats. Parks cites a wide range of influence on his music and draws inspiration from innovative artists such as Radiohead and Bjork, while still maintaining an authentic Jazz sound in a contemporary setting.

Parks came to the attention of Blue Note Records during his five-year tenure with Terence Blanchard, during which he appeared on three of the trumpeter's acclaimed Blue Note albums: Bounce, Flow and A Tale of God's Will.

“I'm thrilled to be a part not only of the classic Blue Note legacy, but also the new legacy." - Aaron Parks
