John Hollenbeck's Claudia Quintet + 1
The percussionst/composer's sextet can seem like two or three different bands during the course of a set: They're enamored of precision, and make their sharp turns and signature rhythmic shits with perfection, but they also crack open their tunes, giving interplay as much room as needed to detonate a series of explosions. On this two-nighter they integrate Theo Bleckmann's dreamy vocals into the mix.
