Pianists may hear that as a diminished chord over an alternate root for voicing purposes, but most people hear that as an A7b9, which is also how it functions in that context. Diminished would have a different bass note and resolve in a different way.
Good point. I definitely should have said it like that. Thanks!

A go-to turnaround chord in Dm. Alternatively, slip into it as a dim. to open a myriad of options for changing key sig.
