Don't miss this special performance by the 2003 Grammy Award Winner for the best large jazz ensemble album, the Dave Holland Big Band! Dave Holland is one of the most acclaimed and accomplished legacies in contemporary jazz. Dave Holland has performed with those who occupy the loftiest realms of creativity and acclaim - from his early days in London accompanying masters like Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster, through his work with Miles Davis" trailblazing ensembles of the late 1960's, his long association with Sam Rivers in the 1970's, and so many other jazz notables. For their Center Series performance, eight musicians will join his standard quintet of Chris Potter, saxophones, Robin Eubanks, trombone, Steve Nelson, vibraphone and marimba, Billy Kilson, drums, and Dave Holland on double-bass.
"The most uplifting and joyous band working today."
-Seattle Times
