THE CLAUDIA QUINTET
(Chris Speed, clarinet, tenor saxophone; Matt Moran, vibraphone; Ted Reichman, accordian; Drew Gress, acoustic bass; John Hollenbeck, drums; Special Guest - Matt Mitchell, piano)
This New York band led by drummer and composer John Hollenbeck - a leader of a new generation of musicians who have brought together many disparate threads of contemporary music to create a new sound - recasts jazz in shimmering new shapes inflected by classical minimalism, new music, progressive rock and post-rock.
For this ensemble, drummer Hollenbeck has assembled a group of the foremost innovators in this new sound to create a powerhouse band. The quintet's one-of-a-kind "jazz and beyond" sound, with massive emotional depth, comes organically from the uncanny interplay of its virtuosos: Drew Gress (John Surman, Uri Caine, Ravi Coltrane), Matt Moran (Slavic Soul Party, Mat Maneri, Theo Bleckmann), Ted Reichman (Anthony Braxton, Marc Ribot, Paul Simon), and Chris Speed (Human Feel, Bloodcount, AlasNoAxis), accompanied by guest pianist Gary Versace, best known for his work with John Scofield, John Abercrombie and Maria Schneider.
