THE CLAUDIA QUINTET feat. Theo Bleckmann

February 27, 2012


John Hollenbeck's Claudia Quintet's west coast debut of What Is The Beautiful?, their acclaimed 2011 Cuneiform Records Release, and tribute to late beat poet Kenneth Patchen.

Two-time Grammy nominee including 2010 for Best Large Ensemble Jazz Album and 2012 for Best Instrumental Composition

"The record is a meeting between the knotty compositions of drummer John Hollenbeck and the poetry of the late Kenneth Patchen, whose work influenced the Beats. Though Hollenbeck's arrangements are as evocative as ever in crafting a lush maze of percussion, accordion and woodwinds, Patchen's words remain on equal footing with the help of Theo Bleckmann" - Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times

Celebrating their 15th anniversary in 2012, The Claudia Quintet embraces the textural freedom of electronic sounds and improvisation, the structural ambition of contemporary classical music, and most importantly, the joy of bodacious grooves and unapologetically gorgeous melodies. Led by drummer and composer John Hollenbeck, this ensemble features some of the foremost innovators of new sounds in “jazz and beyond.” Their beautifully seductive work recasts jazz in shimmering new shapes with inflections of classical minimalism, new music, progressive rock and post-rock.

The Claudia Quintet's latest release, What Is The Beautiful?, featuring special guest vocalists Kurt Elling & Theo Bleckmann, is a tribute to the late beat poet and visual artist Kenneth Patchen, commissioned by the University of Rochester on the occasion of his 100th birthday.
