Dave Holland Residency, Feb 7-10

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. After spending years exploring the outer reaches with Anthony Braxton and Sam Rivers, the British-born bassist started leading his own ensembles, which have served as a proving ground for a legion of celebrated improvisers. His SFJAZZ Center residency offers a chance to experience Holland in an array of settings, both alone and with a dauntingly talented cast of collaborators.
