Anna Webber

“SIMPLE” (Skirl) is her best work yet, recorded with two of the best musicians working in New York’s compositional, high-concept avant-garde — the pianist Matt Mitchell and the drummer John Hollenbeck. These pieces are bracing, argumentative and engineered to show the range of the group members: fulminous, intense collective improvisation; rapid, chromatic steeplechases; research into long tones and textures." - Ben Ratliff, New York Times

Anna Webber is a flutist, saxophonist, and composer whose interests and work live the overlap  between avant-garde jazz and new classical  music. Webber’s other projects include her septet Percussive  Mechanics, Jagged Spheres with Devin Gray and Elias Stemeseder, and The Hero of Warchester with Nathaniel Morgan and Liz Kosack. She has performed and/or recorded with  bands led by Dan Weiss, Jen Shyu, Matt Mitchell, Ohad Talmor, John Hollenbeck, Ches Smith, Hank Roberts, Harris Eisenstadt, Adam Hopkins, and Erik Hove. In 2015 she received a grant from the Shifting Foundation and 2014 won the BMI Foundation Charlie Parker Composition Prize as a member of the BMI Jazz Composers' Workshop. Webber is originally from Kelowna, British Columbia.

Matt Mitchell is a pianist and composer  interested in the intersections of various strains of acoustic, electric, composed, and improvised new music. He currently composes for and leads several ensembles featuring many of the current foremost musicians and improvisers, including  Tim Berne, Kim Cass, Caroline Davis, Kate Gentile, Ben Gerstein, Sylvaine Hélary, Jon Irabagon,  Travis Laplante, Ava Mendoza, Miles Okazaki, Ches Smith, Chris Speed, Tyshawn Sorey, Chris Tordini, Anna  Webber, Dan Weiss, and Katie Young. He is an anchor member of several significant creative music ensembles which integrate composed and improvised music. He is also  among the core performers of John Zorn’s Bagatelles. 

Composer/percussionist and four-time Grammy nominee John Hollenbeck is renowned in both  jazz and new-music worlds. He has gained widespread recognition as the driving force behind the  unclassifiable Claudia Quintet and the ambitious John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble, groups with  roots in  jazz, world music, and contemporary composition. He is well known in new-music circles  for his longtime collaboration with Meredith Monk and has worked with many of the world's leading musicians in jazz including Bob Brookmeyer, Fred Hersch, and Tony Malaby. John received a Guggenheim Fellowship, the ASCAP Jazz Vanguard Award, and a Doris Duke Performing Artist  Award. He joined McGill University Schulich School of Music’s faculty as professor of Jazz Drums and Improvisation in 2015.
