In 1996 I started my first jazz quintet which morphed into â€˜The Daimon Brunton Quintetâ€™ by the time of the bandâ€™s debut album, â€˜Never Again Such Beautyâ€™ (2002). By 2005 The Daimon Brunton Quintet took a look at the funkier side of jazz with ‘Unlimited-Slip Diff’ (2005). This was the bandâ€™s first album on the Newmarket Music label. By ‘My Favourite Things’ (2008) the band looked at blending French inspired cafÃ© tunes with modern jazz. Adding a piano accordion to the standard setup and a number of original jazz waltzes. Having never recorded a live album The Daimon Brunton Quintet recorded more hours than ever before to come up with the electric ‘Wah Sa’ (2012).
Over the last 3 years Daimon has put Daimon Brunton Quintet on the backburner to startup the 8-piece pop/funk band ‘Soul Cupcake’.
Now Daimon is assembling a BRAND NEW quintet with new tunes and reworkings of his favourite picks from the past 4 albums.
Daimon Brunton – trumpet
Adam Rudegeair – piano
David Gooey – guitar
Adam Donaldson – drums
Craig Strain – bass
The band was a highlight of the Castlemaine Jazz Festival and I promise you that this gig is truly not to be missed.
Get on down to Bennetts Lane Jazz Club on Wednesdays 12th & 19th October, 2016 at 8pm.
