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.

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 will be performing from 26 to 30 September at Bird's Basement.
