Album Review

This exceptional date by Dave Holland Big Band was recorded in 2002 in New York, yet remained unreleased until 2005. As is to be expected, Holland assembled a fine cast of seasoned and young players, some of whom are veterans of Holland's quintets and quartets. These are four saxophones — two alto, tenor and baritone — three trumpets and trombones, and vibes as well as bass and drums. They include Chris Potter and Robin and Duane Eubanks, Antonio Hart, Steve Nelson, Josh Roseman, Billy Kilson, Taylor Haskins, Gary Smulyan, Jonathan Arons and Alex Sipiagin. The music centers around the opening four-part "Monterey Suite," a tour de force commissioned by the Monterey Jazz Festival and originally performed there in 2001. Holland's writing for the trombone section is dynamite. Roseman, Arons, and Robin Eubanks offer up solid bottom rung lines and tight timing as anchors for the rest of the brass though they often charge out front. Potter once more displays his talents as not only a fine soloist but as an excellent ensemble player, carrying the chair with authority and verve. The beautiful "Ario" hosts some really knotty and swelling harmonic interludes and the closer, "Last Minute Man," is electrifying, transcending the confines of the studio. This is an essential Holland date, it is exciting, colorful and wildly innovative. Let's hope he composes and records more in this idiom soon.

Out There, and Awesome

When I was looking for a big band CD to add to my collection, I wanted something contemporary, innovative, and deep. I saw the CD in a bookstore, thought it'd be a good buy, and it is now my favorite jazz album (although the band's previous CD may soon trump it). Although the first couple of listens might not be too pleasant to people not used to really unique chords and rhythms, the album provides great depth; each time I listen to it, the songs sound better and better.

Very very very good.

I used to listen to Dave Holland about 15 or so years ago, and liked him but not like I like him when I listen to him since 02 and beyond. He sounds the best with this group that he ever has - and I'm not a big band fan. Outstanding. Christ Potter has a great, airy, clean sound. Variations in rhythm and melody make you constantly crave whats coming up next. 5 stars!

Awesome band and music, this CD gets better each time I listen!

This CD is amazing... excellent music arranged very creatively, awesome musicians, and it gets better every time I listen to it. The beauty of Dave Holland's composing and arranging is that the more you listen to it, the more interesting it becomes. Chris Potter's and Antonio Hart's solos on this recording are incredible as well. This is where the future of jazz and big band should be headed! Highly recommended.

Overtime, Dave Holland Big Band
