I wish more players had taken his lead with the full big band style he formulated: collective improvisation resulting in a sound that is like an out of control freight train but inhumanly tight at the same time




Dave Holland - What Goes Around



Big Band taken to dizzying heights of awesome.

It's pretty special. Fables of Faubus and Goodbye Pork Pie Hat are amazing. There's a version of Fables of Faubus with lyrics too which is cool.

Black Saint is much easier for me to digest in one setting. Plus that one kind of needs to be taken as one solid piece whereas I can listen to anything here individually.
