Claudia Quintet +1, Lincoln Trio
6:00pm – 8:30pm | Upper Terrace Steps
Claudia Quintet +1
An unmatched innovative and adaptable modern jazz ensemble, so deftly attuned to one another that Grammy nominated leader John Hollenbeck’s most dizzying compositional leaps are taken with an air of playfulness and skewed humor. Named Rising Star Jazz Group by the 2012 Critics Poll in DownBeat Magazine. Commission: Hollenbeck’s Royal Toast. www.johnhollenbeck.com

Matt Moran, vibraphone
