Grammy nomination for Montreal's Matt Haimovitz and Uccello

matt haimowitz studio.jpgMontreal cellist and McGill music prof Matt Haimovitz will be at the Grammys tonight. 

He and his group Uccello are nominated for Best Classical Crossover Album. "Meeting of the Spirits" features music by George Gershwin and Miles Davis, among other well known jazzers. 

This music won't remind you of versions you've heard before though - Uccello is made up of Matt Haimovitz and seven other cellists!

Matt came into our studio to talk about the nomination and to introduce his new album, Matteo.

Listen to his conversation with Dave here.
