TRIBUTARY is a collective devoted to spiritual discovery through music. Paul, Greg, Brian, and Derek met at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. Since their college days, they have relocated to major cities around the country to continue pursuing their craft. With the addition of saxophonist Aaron Hedenstrom, Tributary is an opportunity for these long time friends to share the stage again in spite of logistical challenges. The group's focus is on original compositions by its members that draw from a wide-ranging background in many forms of jazz and free improvisation as well as soul and gospel music. In addition, some reworked arrangements of church hymns will be presented in the group's unique style.

Paul Dietrich, trumpet
Aaron Hedenstrom, saxophones
Greg Woodsbie, piano
Brian Courage, bass
Derek Dreier, drums

Black Diamond thrives on the chemistry and compositions of saxophonists Artie Black and Hunter Diamond. Their music portrays an ensemble sound that enhances the identity of each artist with palettes of entrancing compatibility and polarizing individuality. Their new recording "Mandala" (Shifting Paradigm Records) will be released on 8/11 at Constellation Chicago.
