David Binney

Acclaimed as a considerable and highly individual compositional talent, saxophonist Dave Binney is one of the most prolific young jazz musicians on the scene today. Winning praise from critics and colleagues alike, Dave was recently singled out by Jazz Times as one of a handful of “young 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, Bobby Previte and the Cecil McBee quintet. Dave 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.
