His music is influenced by Latin American rhythms and sounds which he seamlessly incorporates into modern New York-style Jazz. This includes modal harmonies and odd meters as well as other elements that make up the city’s dynamic and vibrant musical tapestry. All About Jazz describes Diamond, who is a mixed Colombian-Jewish-American descent, as “a rising star” in New York’s jazz scene ..”.. Latin Jazz Network describes Diamond as a “composer with great maturity and genius”. His sophomore album “Conduit” was also selected by the Editors’ Pick for “Best Albums 2012”. Diamond is a true artist with his original writing and his use of electric guitar. This instrument is rarely used in contemporary latin jazz.
