Hey guys check out the upcoming events that are part of the SheppARTon Arts Festival … www.sheppartonfestival.org.au/news/. The Daimon Brunton Quintet will be playing a feature gig at Friar’s Cafe on the evening of Friday 1st March. We will be featuring material from the latest album and selections from the new, soon to be recorded, studio album ‘A Jazz Odyssey’.
So I’ve hardly played a note for 4 weeks now and the torn muscle in my throat that I’ve been playing with for two and a half years is finally healing up and feeling stronger.
I’ve bought a new Warburton heavy-set mouthpiece and it sounds amazing. Thanks to Dave and all of the cats down at The Music Place for putting up with me trying every mouthpiece under the sun for 3 days straight.
Furthermore, compositional work on the new album, ‘A Jazz Odyssey’ is finished. The tunes are amazingly strong, melodic and complex and yes .. very, very difficult to play. Nonetheless I can’t wait to hear how this album will pan out. With no injuries, a newly serviced horn and a killer new mouthpiece this album will by far and away be the best yet.
