The Daimon Brunton Quintet (DBQ) has almost completed recording its brand new, full-length album, ‘The Chunky Biscuit’.
It is groovy, funky and very hip. It has latin elements and dance elements but still wrapped in a modern jazz/fusion packaging.
The album also features the original ballad the band has recorded since its debut album ‘Never Again Such Beauty’ (2002).
DBQ is celebrating the recording of this album with a very special feature gig at Open Studio on Thursday 11th February. This will be an intimate performance and seating is extremely limited so please book your tickets as soon as practical via: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/daimon-brunton-quintet-feature-ticketed-event-tickets-133901201097
Following this the band will launch ‘The Chunky Biscuit’ at the beautiful Paris Cat Jazz Club. Given the year that 2020 was we’re expecting this to be a huge party! Let’s send this brand new album into the new world in style! (Ticket link to follow shortly).

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!
Be there at the album launch to hear and see this full length album performed live! Details below…
The Paris Cat Jazz Club â€“ ALBUM LAUNCH!! 6 Goldie Place, Melbourne, CBD, VIC Wednesday 4th March, 2020 8:30pm-10:30pm (doors open from 8:00pm) $20 Entry Tickets available at: https://www.rollerdigital.com/pariscat/product/413654?date=20200304#/sessions
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 (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 (viaÂ www.daimonbrunton.com) and attend the gig on Wednesday 24th July we will give you a full album length CD free of charge.
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. Catchy, hip, funky and sophisticated songs that explore the complexity of the human condition. We’d love to share this night with you. Tix at: https://www.rollerdigital.com/pariscat/product/269156â€¦
