About The Carl Daniel Quintet Jazz Band:

The Carl Daniel Quintet 

  • Carl Daniel - trumpet
  • Edwin Gans - alto saxophone
  • Tim Healy - bass
  • Frank Edgerton - piano
  • Tim Leah - drums

The Carl Daniel Quintet plays a combination of Calypso, Latin and jazz-blues inspired tunes. This combination reflects the band members' origins. Carl hails from St. Vincent (Caribbean island) where he led a band prior to arriving in Canada. Frank comes to us from Costa Rica where the combo gets its Jobim and intricate Latin rhythms influences. Edwin and Tim's H & L are from Canada providing the band with their jazz/blues/rock influences.

Their inspired and energetic interpretations along with the infectious fun they have on stage have been delighting Ottawa audiences for years.
