Black Diamond, featuring Chicago Jazz by Butler native Artie Black, will play songs from their debut recording Mandala on Friday, September 8 at 7:00 p.m. at Butler Little Theatre. The jazz quartet features Artie Black on saxophone, Hunter Diamond on saxophone, Neil Hemphill on drums, and Katie Ernst on bass. The appearance is less than a month after their August album release part at the Constellation in Chicago.

Black Diamond is an adventurous quartet that features the music of saxophonists Artie Black and Hunter Diamond. The group’s instrumentation creates a space for high-energy improvisation and melodicism. Though heavily influenced by jazz music of the 1950s and 60s, the quartet’s compositions feature elements of contemporary folk and world music.

General Admissions tickets are now available.
