I love music.

I write about the music I like and have purchased for the benefit of better understanding it and sharing my preferences with others.

Dave Holland: Prime Directive

(p) 1999 ECM holland_primedirective I love this album. It was my second with Dave Holland leading his own group. Since then, I have picked up most of the rest of their work. Baroque? No. But in my exploration of jazz, this group is one of my favorites: drums, bass, vibraphone, trombone, and sax. A tight group with some real winners. Like... Prime Directive, the opening track. And Juggler's Parade. Until their "Live at Birdland" album came out, this was my favorite release from DHQ. I highly recommend this album. They play in top form, and the album is a great representation of the ensemble. I am upset I didn't get to see them live in their tour this fall.
