Chuck McClelland Unit

Chuck McClelland Unit


Groovy Jazz played by Winnipeg's top talent. Creative ideas meshed with solid time to excite anyone listening. The Unit has an intelligent, melodic nature and will satisfy.


Breaking out at the 2007 Jazz Winnipeg Festival, the Unit played music influenced by Dizzy Gillespie, Maceo Parker, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, Joshua Redman, Miles Davis, etc. The music grows collectively from our extensive backgrounds and is played in the moment so it can only be for the good of everyone in the room. The band was formed by Chuck McClelland to showcase his sensibilities as a bandleader.
