Matt Haimovitz’s all-cello ensemble, UCCELLO, features the next generation of cellists from the Schulich School of Music at McGill University, where Haimovitz is Professor of Cello. Most recently, Uccello was featured on Oxingale’s Angel Heart, a music storybook, narrated by Jeremy Irons. Their critically acclaimed recording, Meeting of the Spirits, featuring jazz milestones re-imagined for a big band of cellos, was nominated for a 2010 GRAMMY AWARD for Best Classical Crossover Album and won a Grammy in the Best Producer of the Year category. The album charted on U.S. College Radio and reach No. 1 on the Canadian College Jazz Charts.  In March 2011, Uccello received a special invitation by Austin’s SXSW to perform the Prelude to the Keynote Address by Bob Geldof. Their showcases at SXSW were featured on CNN.com. Uccello has performed on Boston’s Celebrity Series, New York’s Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Jazz at Lincoln Center, as well as clubs such as Arlington’s Iota, Seattle’s Tractor Tavern, and Eugene’s Sam Bond’s Garage. Uccello has joined Haimovitz on two Oxingale recordings, Goulash! and VinylCello; the first, a classical best seller, appeared on the Billboard charts.
