Dave Holland Overtone Quartet

Ever since Miles Davis brought Dave Holland to America to propel the historic ensemble captured on 1970’s Bitches Brew album, the bassist has been at the center of the action as a game-changing collaborator and consistently inspired bandleader. His latest project, the all-star Overtone Quartet, features three of the most prodigious and celebrated jazz improvisers. Chris Potter, easily the most influential saxophonist of his generation, has recorded a series of revelatory albums both as a leader and as a member of various Holland ensembles. Well known for his work with Charles Lloyd, the SFJAZZ Collective, James Farm and many others, Eric Harland is a drummer of exceptional taste and energy. And pianist Jason Moran, one of the youngest jazz musicians ever awarded a MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Fellowship, is a conceptual powerhouse who borrows from blues, hip hop, free jazz and rock. The band debuted at New York City’s Blue Note in 2009 with every player contributing tunes, which only deepens their breathtaking communion. Consider this performance one of the major jazz events of 2012.
