Dave Holland – Prism

Dave Holland’s Prism is made up of the leader’s propulsive, melodic bass lines, Kevin Eubanks’ soul-stirring rock guitar, Craig Taborn’s virtuosic jazz keyboard and Eric Harland’s snazzy big beats. From the chaotic opener, “The Watcher,” to the calm closer, “Breathe,” the all-star quartet takes listeners on a breathless journey through its spellbinding, spontaneous sounds of fusion. While the album draws a few hints from Holland’s jazz-rock work with Miles Davis, the strongest influence, however, is that Holland has learned one of the important leadership styles from Miles: how to get the best out of your musicians.
