On July 11, 2018 in Bluffton, South Carolina at a great listening space/bar called "The Roasting Room," I got to perform with one of my favorite people on the planet. Hope you enjoy it!
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.
My good friend, Tama Shutts came over today for a vocal duet over Rhythm Changes. Super Fun! If you'd like to see more duets from Tama and I, check Jam Of The Week on Facebook. You can see Tama perform if you're in So Cal over at Cal State Long Beach with "Pacific Standard Time."
This is one of my favorite standards. I really had a nice time playing this one. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for your support and for subscribing and sharing with your friends! Aimee Nolte
A couple of months ago, my student, Matthew Goldberg showed me a piano piece he had written, called "For A Little While." He's on the east coast and I teach him via Skype. Our lessons consist of him showing me a pdf of some composition he is working on, and me telling him what's good about it, and what could be better.
Some fun excerpts from my performance at the Sea Pines country club in Hilton Head, SC with local musicians, Jackson Evans (guitar), Brett Belanger (bass), and Justin Varnes (drums). It was a great way to wrap up the week! Unfortunate lighting, but I was glad for what we got. Thanks to James Berry for running the camera for me.
Hang out with me and let's play our favorite songs!

This afternoon, I hung out with my good friend, Tony Dumas at his place in Altadena. Tony is one of the best bass players in LA and I'm always honored to play with the man who has recorded with JJ Johnson, Nat Adderley, Cedar Walton, Billy Higgins, Art Pepper, Joe Henderson, Etta James, Freddie Hubbard, and so many more, not to mention tours with Sarah Vaughan and Carmen Mcrae! I know I have said in the past that I love a bass player who plays the root on beat one, etc., but in the right setting (especially an intimate one such as this), there's nothing quite like a creative and thoughtful accompanist in a bass player and no one embodies this more than Tony. Listen to the brilliant treatment he gives Jobim's "Once I Loved."
