John Hollenbeck’s McCQ featuring Anna Webber and Matt Mitchell is a sextet comprising of today’s most promising young contemporary jazz musicians. Playing the repertoire of the acclaimed Claudia Quintet, McCQ began as a group of graduate students at McGill University under the tutelage of John Hollenbeck. They have played multiple shows around Montreal, including a concert with Jen Shyu in October 2018, and toured to Toronto and Ottawa in December 2018. This special concert will include the other two thirds of Anna Webber’s Simple Trio (who are also playing earlier on Friday June 21 at 6:00pm on the NAC Fourth Stage). This unique and expanded version of McCQ should not be missed!
