The HD Quintet
The HD Quintet is a quintet started by two students in the jazz studies program at SUNY Purchase, Alex Hamburger and Nicole Davis (hence the name HD). This group formed at SUNY Purchase but it's members come from all over. Mike Robinson (Bass) is from Albany, New York; Nicole Davis (Trumpet) from New York City; Juan Sanchez (Drums) from Bogota, Columbia and members Alex Hamburger (Flute/baritone sax/Vocals) and Andrew Latona (guitar) both reside from the DC area. This quintet has a bi-weekly jam session they play and host in Purchase, New York as well as playing around the NY area at venues such as Silvana's, The Shrine and The Falcon and also in DC at Twins Jazz and the Mid Atlantic Jazz Fest. The HDQ has an EP which was recorded in May 2015 and is releasing a full length record this spring including new original material. To promote this new record, HDQ is going on a tour of the East Coast in the end of May.
