Event Description

The sound of a Dave Holland bass line compels attention. A master of tone, rhythm, and note choice, the bassist, composer, and bandleader is now in his fifth decade as a performer with the highest of musical aspirations:  As he once told a radio interviewer, “I’ve tried to find a way to build a vehicle which lets me utilize the full spectrum which includes the tradition, playing the blues, and improvising freely…there’s been a desire to reconcile all those areas, to make them relevant, hopefully, in a contemporary context, as one music.”


Featuring trombonist Robin Eubanks, vibraphonist Steve Nelson and drummer Nate Smith, the Dave Holland Quintet is widely considered the premier acoustic group in jazz today.  For this engagement, SAXOPHONIST MARK TURNER WILL BE REPLACING CHRIS POTTER.
