Description :'The Claudia Quintet offers a cool complexity that snakes in and out of Hollenbeck's stately compositions.' – Audiophile Audition

'The Claudia Quintet's palette is luxuriously full and varied–this is fascinating music with heart.' – Icon

'... a standout in any year.' – Exposé

Short doesn't necessarily mean simple. Drummer-composer John Hollenbeck acrobatically explores the dichotomy between brevity and complexity on SUPER PETITE, the eighth release by the critically-acclaimed, proudly eccentric CLAUDIA QUINTET. The oxymoronic title of the new album, captures the essence of its ten new compositions, which pack all of the wit and virtuosity that listeners have come to expect from the Claudia Quintet into the time frame of radio-friendly pop songs.

As always, Hollenbeck's uncategorizable music – which bridges the worlds of modern jazz and new music in surprising and inventive ways - is realized by Claudia's longstanding line-up: clarinetist/tenor saxophonist Chris Speed, vibraphonist Matt Moran, bassist Drew Gress, and accordionist Red Wierenga. Over the course of 19 years and 8 albums, the band has forged an astounding chemistry and become expert at juggling mind-boggling dexterity with inviting emotion and spirit.

The concept was both a personal challenge for Hollenbeck as a composer always dealing with a wealth of ideas, but also a reaction to a tendency in modern music toward the epic. 'I'm feeling things in the opposite direction,' the composer explains. 'When tunes are longer, there tend to be moments when not a whole lot is happening. If you have a really short tune, the whole thing has to be compelling.'

Speaking of compelling, the release comes with a fat, 20 page color booklet, filled with unusual artwork.
