The second album by the Paul Dietrich Quintet, Focus was released in 2017 on ears&eyes records and features entirely music written by Dietrich. For four of the tracks, a new guest was added to the band, as vocalist Katie Ernst provides an extra layer of sound. This album led stereogum.com to refer to the band as "masters of modern jazz as a language." The full album is available for purchase on bandcamp.
