Dave Holland Big Band at University Musical Society at Michigan Theater

2 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2012-11-17 2012-11-17 35 Dave Holland Big Band at University Musical Society at Michigan Theater A seminal figure in post-1960s jazz, Dave Holland has never allowed his work to be limited by tradition. His path has led him from the frontiers of free improvisation to his modern ensembles that fully embody the Sam Rivers-instilled philosophy of “playing all of it.” The Wolverhampton, England, native got his big break from Miles Davis, with whom he played during the epochal Bitches Brew period. He formed his first working quintet in 1983 and continued to develop fruitful relationships with artists such as Anthony Braxton, Stan Getz, Cassandra Wilson, Jack DeJohnette, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, Thelonious Monk, Betty Carter, Pat Metheny, Kenny Wheeler, Bill Frisell, Roy Haynes, and Herbie Hancock over the course of his career. This performance with his 13-piece big band is Dave Holland’s third appearance since his 2003 UMS debut. “One of the very best working bands in jazz.” (The New York Times) Michigan Theater, 603 East Liberty false DD/MM/YYYY
