Dave Holland Prism
Dave Holland's Prism
Far more than one of the jazz’s greatest bassists, Dave Holland has inhabited the music’s adventurous edge ever since Miles Davis hired him to anchor his band in 1968 as it rapidly morphed from an acoustic powerhouse to a pioneering fusion combo. Holland returns to the SFJAZZ Center with his aptly-named Prism project featuring the ingenious keyboardist Craig Taborn, former SFJAZZ Collective drummer Eric Harland and Kevin Eubanks, a brilliant guitarist who has resurfaced after a 15-year run leading the Tonight Show Band. Combining the celebrated virtuosity of Taborn on electric and acoustic pianos and the soulful scorch of Eubanks in the front line with Harland’s matchless finesse and expressiveness, this decidedly plugged-in quartet is an explosive outlet for Holland at his unbridled best.
