Dave Holland Interview

On September 6, 2009, I had the opportunity to sit down with the great bass player and composer Dave Holland before his performance at the Tanglewood Jazz Festival. Dave's career took off after being invited by Miles Davis to come to the US from his native England. During that tenure, Dave worked on Miles' landmark recordings In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew. From there Dave went on to collaborate with such greats as Theloneous Monk, Chick Corea, Anthony Braxton, Sam Rivers and many more. As a leader, Dave Holland has produced and written music for over 20 CD's with a variety of ensembles and big bands.
