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!
Daimon Brunton – trumpet Adam Donaldson – drums Adam Rudegeair – keyboard Lawson Kennard – bass David Gooey – guitar
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€¦
