“This is a band that can dial it up when the mood strikes but bring it down to a whisper, too.” – Ron Schepper (

CD9 is “a virtuoso chamber superstructure”. – Raul da Gama (Toronto Music Report)


The Carn Davidson 9 was formed at the beginning of 2010 as a collaborative project between JUNO nominated artists, trombonist William Carn and saxophonist Tara Davidson. CD9 draws on the body of compositions by its co-leaders. This collaborative project is an opportunity for both artists to re-imagine their compositions for this chamber jazz instrumentation, shining new perspective on their existing repertoire. This 9-piece chord-less ensemble utilizes its seven horns as both melodic and harmonic devices, anchored by bass and drums.

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 2017. Both recordings garnered JUNO nominations for Jazz Album of the Year.
