Arthaus Musik releases another highlight in their series of
memorable live jazz concert recordings from the last decades. The
1986 concert at the popular Zelt-Musikfestival 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. Charles Mingus was an important model for
Dave Holland as bassist, composer and bandleader, especially
with regard to the emancipation of the bass and the ensemble
style. And Holland is also a brother to the American jazz giant
in other respects: he constantly returns to a piece over the years
and alters it substantially. The classic Homecoming, which can
also be enjoyed on this DVD runs through his work illustrating the
alternation between continuity and change that is so typical of his style. 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. But for the most part the great communicator has realized his music in combos of four
or five members. In Freiburg the sidemen were people who already had, or would soon have, reputations as bandleaders
in their own right: Steve Coleman who matured into a great soloist at Holland's side, Kenny Wheeler, the great veteran
of modern jazz, Robin Eubanks and Marvin 'Smitty' Smith: Holland gave all of them plenty of space.
Holland has always emphasized that, for him, music is working in a group. He would like everyone in his group to feel
that he has his own place, that he can be himself and give expression to his own imagination and his own creative
efforts. All the same, the result always bears Dave Holland's signature. The visual and aural proof of his success is in
the hands of everyone who owns this DVD.
