The Claudia Quintet

The Claudia Quintet

“This is a true ensemble from top to bottom, a sonic equivalent to a hand-woven tapestry.... Impressive.” DownBeat

The Herb Alpert Creative Music Series

The brilliant New York band led by drummer and composer John Hollenbeck recasts jazz in shimmering new shapes inflected by classical minimalism, new music, progressive rock and post-rock. The quintet’s one-of-a-kind “jazz and beyond” sound, with massive emotional depth, comes organically from the uncanny interplay of its virtuosos: Hollenbeck, Drew Gress (double bass), Matt Moran (vibes), Ted Reichman (accordion) and Chris Speed (clarinet, tenor sax), accompanied by guest artist Gary Versace (piano). Their beautifully seductive work features propulsive grooves, catchy melodies and improvisation that is nothing short of telepathic.
