I am so grateful and honoured to be speaking with Ross Nable on PBS 106.7 FM this Sunday as part of his show ‘Impressions’. We will be chatting about DBQ’s new album ‘The New Sound’ and our upcoming gig on Sunday 22nd March at Open Studio as part of Darebin’s ‘Fuse Festival’.


The recording is over. The final edits and mixing is over and the final mastering is almost complete

… AND …

On Wednesday 4th March at The Paris Cat Jazz Club DBQ will be launching the brand new, extraordinary, full length album “The New Sound”!

This IS the most ambitious project DBQ has attempted in its 23 year history and it was worth the gamble! This album is overflowing with visceral energy, creativity and sophistication. We can’t find anything that sounds quite like this!

The New Album!! (and it’s launch gig!!)

Over November, December and January DBQ recorded their first album for 8 years!!

The final edits and mixing is being done as we write this but I can assure you that this is something stellar. I have scoured Spotify and alike and I honestly can’t find anything that sounds quite like this. This is visceral, complex, time-shifting music that demands the very best.

DBQ last launched an album 8 years ago but on Wednesday 4th March DBQ heads into The Paris Cat Jazz Club to unveil their most exciting and ambitious project to date.

This phrase get bandied around regularly but with heartfelt sincerity you want to be there for this!

‘The Daimon Brunton Quintet’ has recorded 4 albums; sold out venues all over Australia and completed a national tour and now the band gets ready for album No. 5.

Influenced largely by Clifford Brown, Freddie Hubbard, Hiromi, Snarky Puppy and Wynton Marsalis, The Daimon Brunton Quintet is like nothing you have ever heard before.

On Thursday 24th October, Daimon Brunton and his outstanding band enter the basement of The Paris Cat Jazz Club for an evening of unparalleled inventiveness!

This is the new direction of jazz and you won’t be able to take your ears off it. Funky, melodic, catchy and sophisticated this is music that sounds like nothing else.

This outrageously stellar line-up mesmerises and captivates like no other.

Don’t miss this special event at The Paris Cat Jazz Club – Thursday 24th October.

DBQ are BACK at The Paris Cat Jazz Club! And there’s a new full-length album in the pipeline!

The Daimon Brunton Quintet (or DBQ) return to the beautiful Paris Cat Jazz Club on Wednesday 24th July.

At a gathering 20 years ago Daimon had an in-depth discussion with another musician asking the question whether it would ever be possible for an original, instrumental jazz tune of high sophistication and quality to be a popular ‘hit’.

Well the conversation finished without resolution and Daimon has been searching for an answer, via his compositions and trumpet playing, ever since.

DBQ hope to record their fifth full length feature album later this year and things are building to quite a climax.

On Wednesday the DBQ perform at The Paris Cat Jazz Club in an effort to answer the question that began 20 years ago.

If you subscribe to the DBQ website (via and attend the gig on Wednesday 24th July we will give you a full album length CD free of charge.

DBQ LIVE on Wednesday 10th April at The Paris Cat Jazz Club! Don’t miss this!

On Wednesday 10th April myself (Daimon Brunton), Adam Donaldson, Adam Rudegeair, David Gooey & Lawson Kennard descend the velvet staircase of The Paris Cat Jazz Club to play tunes we love and would love to share with you.
