Florian Arbenz The perfect summer sound for jazz fans! :-)

Maybe not my favourite compositions on a Dave Holland album, but the joy of those stellar-musicians performing together can be felt on each of the tracks! I especially love Lionel Loueke's contribution to the music, so much imagination - and what a sound! His comping is just on top of the game. Really fun to listen to this group! Favorite track: Aziza Dance.

This worldly modern-jazz supergroup — a collective made up of the bassist Dave Holland, the saxophonist Chris Potter, the guitarist Lionel Loueke and the drummer Eric Harland — toured widely before recording its self-titled debut. As one might expect, it’s an album on which every granite-carved rhythmic vamp accrues many subtleties of texture and inflection, and any solo heroics (of which there’s no shortage) are absorbed into a larger flow.
