Read "Abundance" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Carn Davidson 9: Murphy

Read "Murphy" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The “Carn" in Carn Davidson 9 is trombonist William, the “Davidson" saxophonist Tara. They are Canadians, as are the other seven members of their Toronto-based ensemble. They are also first-class musicians, an assessment that applies as well to everyone in the Carn Davidson 9. This is apparently the second album by the nonet, ...

Tara Davidson: Duets

Read "Duets" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Saxophonist Tara Davidson has continually expanded the size of her band to suit each of her recording projects. Until now, that is.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
