He was the pianist and musical director for legendary jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, and in recent years, played with the New York Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra as featured soloist on George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F.
Diehl served in 2014-2015 as Music Director for Jazz at Lincoln Center’s New Orleans Songbook series; performed in the 2014 New York premiere of Philip Glass’ complete Etudes at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and collaborated with NEA Jazz Master Benny Golson as well as flamenco guitarist Dani De Morón in Flamenco Meets Jazz (produced by Savannah Music Festival and Flamenco Festival).
