On September 20th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to welcome the David Binney Quartet in their debut performance at Firehouse 12 as they celebrate their recent album Lifted Land (Criss Cross Records). Binney has collaborated with a wide range of musicians in his groups. For this performance, Binney performs alongside long-standing collaborator, bassist Eivind Opsvik, pianist Jacob Sacks, and drummer Nasheet Waits.

Binney is "one of those jazz musicians who are just as strong in their composing and group-leading as they are in their playing" (Paul Hrycaj, All Jazz Sax Blog). Nate Chinen of The New York Times wrote "[Binney] doesn't swim in the jazz mainstream, but neither is he sworn to an established avant-garde. . .his in-betweenness is a signature." In a review of Lifted Land, John Kelman of All About Jazz wrote "it's hard to imagine how David Binney manages to release one terrific record after another."

Binney is 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. He was also a co-founder of the hard-edged quintet "Lost Tribe" and the open-form collective quartet "Lan Xang." He has recorded over a dozen albums as a leader or co-leader.
