I just got a brochure for what's on musically in Brighton next year and this caught my eye. Apparently the Jazz-loving contemporary ("classical") composer Mark Anthony Turnage has written a showcase piece for Dave Holland called "Bass Inventions". So this is going to be featured in a concert in February, in my hone town, where Dave Holland will play with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group ( I believe he originally comes from this area?). I will definitely be going and am glad to see there is more crossover between the Jazz and Orchestral worlds - a highlight for me last year was the concerto which featured drummer Pete Erskine and percussionist Evelyn Glennie. But it's nice to see some Bass getting into the repertoire.
