As I tell Dave Holland in the beginning of our conversation, on so many of my all-time favorite recordings it’s him playing the bass! He’s one of my biggest heroes in music and I can’t really put into words how excited I was to talk to him!

In this conversation we cover a lot of things, ranging from Dave’s current activities, putting together repertoires, relaxation, his relationship with Jack DeJohnette, his tenure with Joe Henderson, harmonic experiments with Herbie Hancock, ear training, leading a band, composing,  Miles Davis’ record “Filles De Killimanjaro”, our memories of John Taylor, and much more… Enjoy!
