TDK releases another highlight in their series of memorable live jazz concert recordings from the last decades. The 1986 concert at the popular Zelt-Musik-Festival features the quintet formation of musician, eminent bassist, composer and bandleader Dave Holland.

Until the mid-eighties, Dave Holland was mainly known as sideman to his mentor Miles Davis or to Chick Corea. When he founded his own quintet in 1986 his place in jazz history was well established. In fact, Holland’s musical activities had heightened the awareness of the double-bass as an instrument in its own right, as Jazz Podium pointed out: “It’s true that Holland’s bass often appears as the engine with ongoing bass lines, but Holland is always revealed as the musical coordinator, the one who enables bebop to become ‘free-bop’, and whose composer’s calculations are behind the arc reaching from traditional trombone-trumpet-saxophone introductions, with constantly varying orchestral sound patterns, to improvisations set free from harmonic schemata, without overstretching either the arc or the listener.”

If Holland’s compositions are unmistakable, so too is his sound: strong, clear and warm.– it makes him one of the few bassists capable of putting on purely solo recitals that never grow boring.
