Dan Davis Quartet

 

Dan Davis is a saxophonist and educator from Edmonton AB. He completed his Masters in Jazz Studies at the University of South Florida in 2009. He leads the Way Back Whens, a brand new trad-jazz band whose new record “Live at the Yardbird Suite” is being played on the radio across the country. Dan is also a member of The Brasstactics, Canada’s loudest brass party band. In 2015 Dan’s composition “What Happens Next” received an Edmonton Music Award for Best Jazz Recording.

For this show, Dan will be joined by some of Edmonton’s finest up and coming musicians. Composer and Pianist Stephanie Urquhart will be on keys, fresh off of her masters in composition at McGill University. Sean Croal and Biboye Onanuga will bring their buoyant rhythmic energy, which they have brought every week for the last year and half running the New Standards session at the Common.

Currently, Dan is an instructor at MacEwan University and the MacEwan Conservatory of Music at Alberta College.
