Strange Frontiers is a brand new project that I've been writing for over the course of the last four months which sets the poetry of my father, Eric Diamond, to new original music. Using spoken-word, melodic, and mixed-media forms, this program is a very exciting venture for me as a composer and performer.
The Black Diamond Quartet has continued to work through a new body of material composed by Artie Black and myself, some of which we will present here.
Artie Black - Tenor Saxophone
Hunter Diamond - Tenor Saxophone
Kitt Lyles - Bass
Neil Hemphill - Drums
