This concert gem stars the Dave Holland Quintet at the peak of their musical maturity: merging passion and logic, spontaneity and group interplay with sparkling clarity.
Each musician works as a cog in the delightful engine of swing, relating his phasing to the supple beats laid down by Holland and Smith.
Without a piano, without a “standards” song repertoire, and with poise and effortless concentration, the Quintet creates palpable musical shapes using innovative themes and variations.
For all its unique inventiveness, they project an utter melodic mellowness on their tunes: "Vortex," "Homecoming" and "Wiguts Waits for Weights."
V.I.E.W. is proud to present the Dave Holland Quintet in a music lover’s greatest reward: a full-length concert DVD that will rivet your attention to every phase that’s played and transport you to a higher musical world.
