Info for Conference of the Birds (Remastered)

Conference of the Birds, 1972 aufgenommen, war Dave Hollands erstes ECM-Album als alleiniger Leader. Voll treibendem progressivem Jazz, hat es historische Signifikanz als die erste Session, bei der Sam Rivers und Anthony Braxton, zwei der originellsten Saxophonisten des Genres, gemeinsam aufnahmen. Dieses Gipfeltreffen erntete Lobeshymen in der Presse: „Wenn sie bisher Swing, Zusammenhang und Abwechslungsreichtum im neuen Jazz vermisst haben, dann hören sie sich dieses Album an“, empfahl Downbeat in einer Fünf-Sterne-Rezension.

David Holland
Over the course of a nearly five-decade career, bassist and composer Dave Holland has never stopped evolving, reinventing his concept and approach with each new project while constantly honing his instantly identifiable voice. From the electric whirlwind of Miles Davis’ electric band to the pioneering avant-garde quartet Circle to his own acclaimed big band, Holland has been at the forefront of jazz in many of its forms since his earliest days. The Boston Globe praises Holland as “a master bassist and bandleader, one of the most sophisticated composers and arrangers in the jazz world.”

Longtime collaborator Kevin Eubanks was recently featured in Holland’s visceral electric quartet, PRISM, and joins Holland once again in a new trio for what promises to be an exciting and innovative journey.
