Dave Holland Quintet


Critic Kevin Whitehead once called ’em “the jitters”–the end result of those rhythmic intersections that composer Holland uses to set things in motion. They give the veteran bassist’s music a charged effect, balancing friction with poise and ultimately leading to some all-together-now polyphony. This fivesome, which features tenor sax wonder Chris Potter, has been together awhile. Their spin on the jitters is sublime indeed.
