The group has released two albums. Focus, released in 2017 on ears&eyes Records, was called “refreshingly unique” and “captivating” by the Chicago Jazz Magazine, and led stereogum.com to describe the band as “masters of modern jazz as a language.” The group's debut album, We Always Get There, was released in 2014, and prompted allaboutjazz.com to state in a four-star review that with “this superbly imaginative and cohesive recording, Dietrich proves himself an apt bandleader, an exceptional composer and a superlative performer.” JazzinMadison.org praised the album as “uniquely introspective” and OnMilwaukee.com stated that “it implies wisdom, experience and emotion that couldn't possibly be contained in a 20-something's wheelhouse.” The Quintet's lineup, unchanged since its inception, includes some of the best young talent in the Chicago area: saxophonist Dustin Laurenzi, pianist Paul Bedal, bassist Tim Ipsen and drummer Andrew Green.

Paul Dietrich Jazz Ensemble (featuring Clarence Penn): Forward

Read "Forward" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Paul Dietrich: We Always Get There

Read "We Always Get There" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
