Jazz Composers' Symposium: John Hollenbeck & Claudia Quintet

Event Type: Symposium
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: School of Music
John Hollenbeck is a composer whose output is truly "beyond category" -able to translate the 
traditions of jazz and new music into a fresh, eclectic, forward-looking language of his own invention.  
A drummer and percussionist possessed of a playful versatility and virtuosic wit, John formed Claudia 
to be a ‘band’ with a sound determined not just by the compositions but by the performers 
themselves.  The Quintet (Drew Gress - bass, Matt Moran, vibes, Red Wierenga - accordion, & Chris 
Speed - clarinet/sax), formed in 1997, has released 6 recordings proving that genre-defying music is 
for everyone!  John’s awards include 4 Grammy nominations, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and 
recognition as a ‘rising star’ in the Downbeat Critics Poll.
