Album Notes
The Carn Davidson 9

The Carn Davidson 9 was formed at the beginning of 2010 as a collaborative project between JUNO nominated artists, trombonist William Carn and saxophonist Tara Davidson. CD9 draws on the body of compositions by its co-leaders. This collaborative project is an opportunity for both artists to “reimagine” their compositions for this chamber jazz instrumentation, shining new perspective on their existing repertoire. This 9-piece chord-less ensemble utilizes its seven horns as both melodic and harmonic devices, anchored by bass and drums.

The Carn Davidson 9’s unique sound is made stronger by an all-star lineup of prominent Canadian artists who are all exceptional ensemble players as well as outstanding soloists. In 2017, CD9 will be releasing their follow-up recording to their 2014 JUNO-nominated debut recording, NINE. The CD9 has already been featured at Toronto’s Rex Hotel Jazz Bar and the Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival.

CD9 is…

Tara Davidson, woodwinds Jason Logue, trumpet Alex Duncan, bass trombone
Kelly Jefferson, woodwinds Kevin Turcotte, trumpet Andrew Downing, bass
Perry White, woodwinds William Carn, trombone Ernesto Cervini, drums
