Dave Holland Quintet in Athens Print E-mail

As a group that can project like a big band, the quintet’s magic comes from their chamber-like sensibility with a spellbinding intimacy best heard in the friendly confines of a club. “Free For All” typifies the band’s attitude, which is a paradoxical blend of early jazz polyphony, free interplay, jazz-rock fusion with a meticulous adherence to both melody and improvisation, as well as a fresh approach to swing. This is possible because there’s so much trust expressed among Holland, reedist Chris Potter, trombonist Robin Eubanks, vibist Steve Nelson and drummer Billy Kilson. … When the Dave Holland puts it all together there isn’t a band alive that can touch them.
