Hello Everyone,

World-reknowned saxophonist David Binney will be bringing his quartet to the Rex Hotel for TWO NIGHTS ONLY on November 7th & 8th! It's been over 8 years since he's played in Toronto, so let's give him a warm T.DOT welcoming!

About David Binney:

Acclaimed as a considerable and highly individual compositional talent, saxophonist David Binney is one of the most prolific jazz musicians on the scene today. Winning praise from critics and colleagues alike, David was recently singled out by Jazz Times as one of a handful of «players who have created an alternative jazz-scene… all of whom are playing adventurous, original music.»

Known for his performances with such prestigious groups as the big bands of Gil Evans and Maria Schneider, as well as with Jim Hall, Uri Caine, Vinicius Cantuaria, Norah Jones, Bobby Previte, Cecil McBee quintet and countless others. David was also a co-founder of the hard-edged quintet «Lost Tribe» and the open-form collective quartet «Lan Xang.» With these groups and on his own, he has recorded a dozen albums as leader or co-leader.

David was born in Miami, Florida and raised in Southern California. At the age of 19 moved to New York City to play gigs and to study with Phil Woods, Dave Liebman, and George Coleman.

David’s distinctive saxophone sound and innovative compositions have been heard from basement clubs in New York to jazz festivals in Europe and the world. In addition to his extensive work as a leader, he has been sought after as a sideman, appearing on record with Medeski, Martin & Wood and Uri Caine's Mahler Project. David has also appeared on stage with Aretha Franklin, at Carnegie Hall, and with Maceo Parker, to name a few. He has produced all of his own 22 albums, and many others including two of the Lost Tribe releases, 6 Donny McCaslin releases and a Scott Colley “The Architect of the Silent Moment”… David started his record label, Mythology Records, in 1998. David also created the group the Donny McCaslin group that eventually became the group on David Bowies’s #1 record Blackstar.

David is bringing his quartet for the shows at the Rex Hotel. He will be joined on stage by drummer Anthony Fung; Toronto Native and an alumnus of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, where he earned a master of music (M.M.) degree while studying and performing with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Chris Potter, Billy Childs, and many others. Another member of the band is Logan Kane — bassist, poet and composer, who worked with Chris Potter, Nate Wood, Justin Brown, Edward Simon, Katisse Buckingham, Roy McCurdy, Peter Erskine, and Steve Lehman. The fourth member is pianist Luca Mendoza, who is a 2016 National YoungArts Finalist for Jazz piano and Merit Jazz composition winner.
