The Dave Holland Quintet Live at the Highline TONIGHT!

June 27, 2011

Dave Holland is a jazz bassist, composer and bandleader who has been performing and recording for five decades, and has lived in the United States for 40 years.

His work ranges from pieces for solo performance to big band. Holland runs his own independent record label, Dare2, which he launched in 2005. He has explained his musical philosophy by quoting fellow jazz artist Sam Rivers. “Sam said, ‘Don’t leave anything out—play all of it,’ ” Holland once told a radio interviewer. “That’s become almost a mantra for me over the years as I’ve tried to find a way to build a vehicle which lets me utilize the full spectrum which includes the tradition, playing the blues and improvising freely. I love all that music, and there’s been a desire to reconcile all those areas, to make them relevant, hopefully, in a contemporary context, as one music.”
