Dave Holland Sextet at Saalfelden Jazz Festival

Jez Nelson presents Dave Holland's Sextet in concert in August 2008 at Austria's Saalfelden Jazz Festival. Performing together for the first time in Europe, the group play songs from their most recent album Pass It On, featuring Dave Holland on bass, Robin Eubanks on trombone, Antonio Hart on alto saxophone, Alex Sasha Sipiagin on trumpet, Mulgrew Miller on piano and Eric Harland on drums. Holland's men create a captivating sound by striking the right balance between tight collective groves and freer periods of individualism.

British-born Holland was involved in London's vibrant free improvisation scene in the 1960s playing with The Spontaneous Music Orchestra. Shortly after, he was invited to join Miles Davis's band, with which he recorded the classic albums of his pivotal electric period, including Bitches Brew and In a Silent Way. Since then, Holland has played in the influential avant-garde group Circle with Chick Corea and Anthony Braxton as well as The Gateway Trio with John Abercrombie and Jack DeJohnette.
