2018 JAZZ ALBUM: GROUP | Carn Davidson 9 | | The JUNO Awards

The Carn Davidson 9 (CD9) 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 chordless 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. CD9's November 2017 release, Murphy, is their follow-up recording to their 2014 JUNO-nominated debut recording, NINE.
