The Magnolia Quintet

About this event

Playing a mix of original compositions and jazz standards, the young yet seasoned members of The Magnolia Quintet perform old-school jazz with passion and sophistication. The Magnolia Quintet strives to illuminate the genre’s future while also paying homage to the heyday of bebop and hard bop. The Quintet’s members have performed on stages around the world, and trained and played with countless jazz legends, yet it is together that they find their greatest spark and inspiration.

Huntley McSwain (vocals) is a freshly-minted graduate of Belmont University. Huntley’s powerful and distinctive contralto jazz and soul voice exhibits both a classic style and a tremendous emotional force. The newest Magnolia, Huntley is originally from Dallas, Texas. She moved to Nashville in 2017 to pursue her passion for music.

Hunter Smith (sax) is a fiery player with a large sound. Hunter is a 2016 graduate of the University of Tennessee, where he was named the program’s outstanding graduate his senior year. Hunter then received an M.M. in 2018 from the New England Conservatory, where he studied with Jerry Bergonzi and Donny McCaslin. Since returning to Nashville, Hunter has been widely active as a performer and educator. Please visit http://huntersmithjazz.com.

Bill Alexson (piano) is a performer, composer, and educator. Bill holds a B.M. from Belmont University, and an M.M. from the New England Conservatory, where he received the Presidential Distinction Award while studying with Frank Carlberg and Jason Moran. Bill’s experiences run the gamut from performing for George Jones’ 80th birthday celebration to receiving the Bösendorfer Silver Award at the American Jazz Pianist Competition.

Chris Mondak (bass) plays with a dynamic, aggressive style. A 2020 graduate of the New England Conservatory, Chris studied with jazz luminaries Cecil McBee and Dave Holland, and he has performed with musicians such as Wycliffe Gordon, Dave Douglas, Marvin Stamm, and Jeff Hamilton. Chris’s tune “Always Smiling” was named the best original composition at the 2019 Hengqin Cup Jazz Competition in Zhuhai, China. Please visit https://chrismondak.com.

Chris Broomhead (drums) came to Nashville from Melbourne, Australia, where he trained at Monash University and the Victorian College of the Arts. Prior to moving to Nashville, Chris’s trio Refraction released four CDs including the widely acclaimed “As We Were” (2015). Since his arrival, Chris has been active on the Nashville music scene, via both live performances and studio sessions. Please visit http://chrisbroomhead.com.
