Dave Holland in Ottawa w/Herbie Hancock

  1. Anyone else catch Dave Holland with Herbie Hancock in Ottawa last night? Dave did a solo which I swear sounded atleast based on a piece I've heard before but I can't for the life of me remember what its called. I've gone thru my whole Holland collection (although I can't find my copy of Conference of the Birds) and I haven't been able to identify it. Anyone else know? Adrian Cho maybe?

    Dave was playing a bass I haven't seen before with a low C extension and he actually played alot of electric (Fender P-Bass with a humbucker added by the bridge).

    I also caught Renaud Garcia-Fons today. While his technique is phenomenal, it was more flamenco + latin based than jazz and seemed much more composed than improvised. Great music and amazing playing but not really my thing.

    Winnipeg, baby
    Thanks for reminding me my business trip to Ottawa was the week before the jazz fest! I got rain and a little food poisoning and no live music at all. But I got the work done, I guess...
  3. It was Walk-A-Way from Seeds of Time. I listened to it on the way to a gig last night and recognized it immediately.
