    I picked up a couple good new releases from the Dave Holland Big Band, and Chick Corea's bassist Avishai Cohen today. Both albums are very good! The big band sounds great, And I really dig Billy Kilson's drumming. Avishai dosen't get mentioned around here much, but he's a great player and composer on both electric and upright! Just a little heads up for you guys and especially Jim K :cool:

    Thanks, Jerry. Thanks a lot for puttin' me in the Haus de Poor.
    ;)

    So Kilson is still drumming with the DH BB? I thought Nate Smith(from my neck of the woods) had taken over? Then again...when was this album recorded?

    Is the Cohen disc all acoustic(ala Adama)?
    Or is it more like his later ones(couple of electric bass tunes)?
    ...how big a band, too? Or maybe I should head over to www.allmusic.com?
    ;)

    BTW, the recent Andrew Hill Mosaic 3-disc box set is pretty happenin'(so far).

    Jim, I'm pretty sure the Holland recording is new, I usually buy all his stuff, and never saw this one. The band is a thirteen piece big band. The Avishai recording is mostly upright with a little electric, I like the way Avishai plays electric :bassist:

    Jerry-
    The album was just released today(I think). It may have been recorded a year or so ago with Kilson still bangin' away.

    Smith was on the gig Saturday in Portland. I missed it (boo!), but several of my friends went. Here's one account from a blog: http://www.oregonlive.com/jazz/weblog/

    I also missed Charlie Haden, John Patitucci, and Dave Friesen, among others who played the festival. :meh:
