Jazz legend Dave Holland back in Molde with a new, strong quartet

Raised in England, he left school at the age of fifteen to become a pop musician, but discovered jazz and switched electric bass to double bass. When he played at Ronnie Scott's in London, Miles Davis heard him. It resulted in Holland moving to the USA and, aged 22, joining Miles' groundbreaking band in the late sixties. The rest is jazz history.

In addition to collaborating with a number of jazz's biggest stars, Dave Holland has for more than fifty years led his own bands from big bands to chamber ensembles. His career is documented through an extensive discography, with both his own classics such as Conference of the Birds, Miles Davis' Bitches Brew and In a Silent Way and others.

There are therefore great expectations when Dave Holland has assembled a new quartet for the first time in a long time. Particularly exciting is perhaps the collaboration with the brilliant pianist Kris Davis. She did a bunch of duo concerts with Holland which were so successful that they decided to further develop the company. Davis is a pianist who manages to make initially challenging music both accessible and engaging.

With the addition of the brilliant Nasheet Waits on drums and Jaleel Shaw on alto and soprano sax, everything is set for an exciting Norwegian premiere with Dave Holland's new band in a playful acoustic expression.
