Relax Attack Jazz Series: Paul Dietrich Quintet

Every Tuesday we present Chicago’s top jazz artists in a lively atmosphere, full of cocktail-shaking and spirited conversation.

  • Paul Dietrich – trumpet/compositions
  • Dustin Laurenzi – tenor sax
  • Paul Bedal – piano
  • Tim Ipsen – acoustic & electric bass
  • Andrew Green – drums

With the release of his band’s second album, Focus, trumpeter and composer Paul Dietrich further hones his distinctive style. This genre-blurring album features Dietrich’s characteristic lush harmonies and subtle melodies, gliding over a fresh, rhythmically adventurous framework. For Dietrich, the essence of Focus exists in a liminal space between introspective simplicity and organized chaos.
