The Paul Dietrich Jazz Ensemble is celebrating the release of its debut album, Forward, which features the world-renowned drummer Clarence Penn (Maria Schneider, Dave Douglas). Consisting of eight of Dietrich's original compositions written over the past four years, Forward is the first recorded album of the composer's original, large ensemble jazz music, which draws on inspirations such as contemporary big band writers Maria Schneider, Christine Jensen and Fred Sturm. The ensemble features some of the Midwest's very best jazz musicians, including Greg Ward, Russ Johnson, Dustin Laurenzi and Matt Gold.

"Dietrich proves himself an apt bandleader, an exceptional composer, and a superlative performer." - allaboutjazz.com
