“A Jazz Genius to Call Our Own” – Maclean’s Magazine
Combining harmonic intricacies fundamental to his training in European classical music and the spontaneity of American jazz, Braid’s original music engages audiences with a quiet, thoughtful, lyrical voice that does not conform neatly to any one musical genre. His work has been described as “refreshingly uncategorizable” (Paris Transatlantic), “wide-ranging, exploratory” (South China Morning Post), “une force poétique” (Le Soleil) and “elegant” (Ottawa Citizen).
The David Braid Duo is: David Braid – Piano and Mike Murley – Sax.
