JAZZ ON5: Dave Holland & AZIZA (UK/USA)
Jazz Dock, Janáčkovo nábřeží 2, Praha 5 - Smíchov, 150 00
- Wed 31. 10. 2018 21.00
Over the course of a nearly five-decade career, bassist/composer Dave Holland has never stopped evolving, reinventing his concept and approach with each new project while constantly honing his instantly identifiable voice. Dave Holland has been at the forefront of jazz in many of its forms since his earliest days.
Project AZIZA is worldly modern-jazz supergroup — a collective made up of the bassist Dave Holland, the saxophonist Chris Potter, the guitarist Lionel Loueke and the drummer Eric Harland — toured widely before recording its self-titled debut. As one might expect, it’s an album on which every granite-carved rhythmic vamp accrues many subtleties of texture and inflection, and any solo heroics (of which there’s no shortage) are absorbed into a larger flow.
