Dave Holland turns 75

In 1968, Miles Davis and Philly Joe Jones heard him at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, playing in a combo that opened for the Bill Evans Trio. Jones told Holland that Davis wanted him to join his band (replacing Ron Carter). Davis left the UK before Holland could contact him directly, and two weeks later Holland was given three days’ notice to fly to New York for an engagement at Count Basie’s nightclub. He arrived the night before, staying with Jack DeJohnette, a previous acquaintance. The following day Herbie Hancock took him to the club, and his two years with Davis began. Via.


Album: In a Silent Way (1969), recorded on February 18 and released on July 30 on Columbia Records.

‘Water Babies’, de Wayne Shorter

Lançado pela Blue Note no Verão de 1969, o álbum Super Nova conta com a colaboração de Miroslav Vitous, Jack DeJohnette, Chick Corea, e John McLaughlin, entre outros. O saxofone soprano de Wayne Shorter assume o papel principal no meu tema preferido ‘Water Babies’, gravado a 29 de Agosto.

Diz que é uma espécie de ‘Sketches of Spain’…

Welcome to Chick Corea’s brand new Spanish Heart Band, the flamenco-charged eight-man band of Latin rhythm masters. Since he first played with the Spanish Flamenco guitar legend Paco de Lucia, Chick has built a deep catalog of Latin jazz brilliance, beginning with his modern-classic song “Spain,” and the world-groove inspired first Return to Forever album, featuring “Sometime Ago / La Fiesta.” Madrid’s own Jorge Pardo, an original member of Paco’s band, joins Corea on sax and flute, and Niño Josele, who played in Paco’s band in the last years, brings flamenco guitar artistry. Michael Rodriguez on trumpet and Steve Davis on trombone form one of the great modern front lines on horns. Corea’s unstoppable rhythm section — Cuban master Carlitos Del Puerto on bass and drum master of all rhythms Marcus Gilmore — provide the backbone.
