The Davidson/Murley/Braid Quintet (DMBQ) is a collaborative effort amongst Juno Award winners Mike Murley, David Braid, and emerging artist Tara Davidson. They represent world-class improvisation with lyrical grace, contemporary harmony, and rhythmic vitality. DMBQ's repertoire consists entirely of compositions written by the three leaders - many pieces written specifically for this ensemble. While Davidson, Murley, and Braid draw on varied influences in their compositional styles they all share an affection for lyricism, bringing a cohesion to the band's otherwise diverse repertoire.
Personnel: Mike Murley (Sax), Tara Davidson (Sax), David Braid (Piano), Jim Vivian (Bass) & New York's Ian Froman (Drums).
