    So, Holland was only 11 when he gigged with Miles?

    The 'New Standards' tour band was Herbie, Dave Holland, John Scofield, Michael Brecker, Jack DeJohnette, and Don Alias, right?

    I saw one of their concerts last year on 'the Performance Channel' over here. Dave Holland played upright throughtout, but strapped on a 4-string electric bass for the last piece, a reworking of a Prince song.

    I caught the Boston show (last of the four they were doing...four shows is a tour?). I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    DeJohnette had a much lighter approach than I was expecting. He's worked with Dave for years but I had never seen them together, a real treat.

    Dave seriously funked up Canteloupe Island. Man I can't play like that on EBG, let along DB!
     
  9. Yeah, that's what I thought, too! It'snot hard to funk it up but his solo was cool. I still loved his you got it bad bop solo more.
    Also, Herbie's solo on you got it bad was one of the best things I've ever seen :eek: :eek: Just an incredible display!

    If you get a chance to see Herbie live, take it.

    On a tangent...to the fans of the Dave Holland Quintet-
    I stumbled over to the Jazz drummer/guru's house in my hood...he informed me that Billy Kilson is out(took a gig with Bob James) & local Chesapeake boy Nate Smith is now drumming for Holland.
    Damn...where have I been?!
