The Carn Davidson 9 was formed at the beginning of 2011 as a collaborative project between JUNO Award nominated artists, trombonist William Carn and saxophonist Tara Davidson. It is a nine piece, chord-less ensemble that utilizes its seven horns as both melodic and harmonic devices, anchored by bass and drums. This collaborative project is an opportunity for both artists to arrange their own compositions for this chamber jazz instrumentation, shining new perspective on their existing repertoire. In 2014, CD9’s debut recording, “Nine”, was nominated by the JUNO Awards for Best Traditional Jazz Album of the Year.

As leaders of their own bands, Carn and Davidson have released a combined total of eight CDs, all entirely comprised of their original compositions. The Carn Davidson 9 performs compositions from both Carn and Davidson that have been arranged specially for the group’s instrumentation. Carn and Davidson arrange a percentage of the group’s repertoire but they also independently commission the arrangements of outstanding Canadian arrangers such as guitarist Reg Schwager, trombonist Terry Promane, trumpeter Jason Logue and saxophonist Andy Ballantyne. All arrangements feature the unique sound of their group, which is a lineup of prominent Canadian artists who are exceptional ensemble players as well as outstanding soloists.


Trombonist WILLIAM CARN has emerged as one of Canada’s leading contemporary jazz composers and performers. His debut release, Other Stories, was nominated for a 2007 Juno Award as Traditional Jazz Album of the Year. He has also been nominated for Trombonist of the Year at the National Jazz Awards from 2004 to 2008. He has performed and recorded with jazz artists including Rob McConnell, Randy Brecker, David Binney, Kenny Wheeler, Ingrid Jensen, Tim Hagans, Barry Harris, Carla Bley, Steve Swallow, Vince Mendoza, Don Braden, Mike Murley, and Hilario Duran. William also enjoys a diverse freelance career and is a regular member of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival orchestra. William is a RATH Trombone artist and is an instructor at Humber College and the University of Toronto.

Toronto-born alto and soprano saxophonist TARA DAVIDSON has performed around the world at such prestigious venues as New York City’s Carnegie Hall, the acclaimed North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands, the International Jazz Festival in Lima, Peru, and The Kennedy Center, in Washington, D.C. She has produced five recordings as a leader since 2003 and performed on over twenty recordings as a side person. Davidson has earned three JUNO Award nominations for her work as a bandleader. She is an active educator at Toronto’s York University and Humber Community Music School and she is proud to be a Yamaha Music Artist.
