“… dazzling and exhilarating…” – the jazzmann.com
The Claudia Quintet led by drummer/composer John Hollenbeck, features the estimable talents of clarinetist/tenor saxophonist Chris Speed, accordionist/pianist Red Wierenga, bassist Chris Tordini, vibraphonist, Matt Moran; and on occasion, the addition of pianist Matt Mitchell. Together since 1997, the Claudia Quintet is a rarity in jazz: a long-standing ensemble. DownBeat describes them as “…a chamber band that has tickled the ears of adventurous listeners for decades.” Their music defies easy categorization, yet they have cultivated an accessible sound that encompasses both conventional and avant-garde structures.
