NEW RELEASE! Available at


The Carn Davidson 9 was formed at the beginning of 2010 as a collaborative project between JUNO Award-winning trombonist William Carn and saxophonist Tara Davidson. CD9 is a 9-piece chord-less ensemble that utilizes its seven horns as melodic, rhythmic and harmonic devices, anchored by bass and drums. This co-led ensemble is an opportunity for both artists to craft their compositions for this chamber jazz instrumentation.  Also shining new perspective on their existing repertoire is a formidable collection of guest arrangers.

The Carn Davidson 9’s unique sound is made stronger by an all-star lineup of prominent Canadian artists who are all exceptional ensemble players as well as outstanding soloists. CD9 has produced two recordings; “Nine” was their debut released in 2012 and “Murphy” was released in November 2017. Both recordings garnered JUNO nominations for Jazz Album of the Year.
