Dave Holland has a very distinct way of creating colorful conversations between musicians of exceptional caliber. Witness his Quintet recordings and you can touch, feel and experience the wide open spaces created to allow the band to explore and exchange ideas around the rhythm section. The Big Band preserves this concept but adds brass to color the space between the individual performances. What you end up with is a masterful approach to music that is easily accessible, yet innovative and exciting.

"Overtime" is another beautiful recording from an artist who understands the essence and improvisational beauty of Jazz. This music swings, grooves and stimulates. Just listen to the many exceptional solos from Chris Potter, Robin Eubanks and Antonio Hart. The magic happens at a higher level when they dialogue with each other. These musical conversations sound like two artist soloing at the same time, but if you listen closely, you can clearly hear the conversation and exchange between them. The glue to this entire approach is Billy Kilson's incredible rhythmic abilities. He knows when to push forward and when to back off to let the music simmer. The Chemistry between Holland, Kilson and Steve Nelson is magic. They take turns pushing the other musicians to stellar heights throughout the "Monterey Suite". Observe Kilson mixing it up with Potter and Eubanks on "Bring It On" and again on "Free for All". Nelson sparkles on the Marimba in between the solos. The darting & stabbing brass on "Happy Jammy" sets up a fast-paced swirling Gary Hart Soprano solo that echoes Wayne Shorter's best Weather Report performances. This track comes to a rollicking end that left me breathless. The remaining tracks are strong & cohesive.

Awesome album, showcasing all the greatest Holland strengths. The band is extremely tight and communicative, impressive given the fact that the arrangements are intricate, the time signatures complex. Dave continues to write tunes that are experimental, grooving and catchy, with both the expressiveness and technical challenge of the very best jazz.

Holland's playing is prodigious and seemingly unlimited in imagination and facility, as usual. Hats off to Kilson on drums, who seems to have fulfilled a great deal of his considerable promise on this record. He combines a strong fusion-funk groove with the rhythmic freedom and cymbal-expressiveness of T. Williams and E. Jones, a manic sense of constant motion, split-second free-association and a sense of humor. Not many drummers can play this relentlessly and stay both innovative and tuned-in to the band. I love it, and I'm still trying to count some of those measures!

This is the companion album to What Goes Around, also by Dave Holland's absolutely outstanding big band. The sound here is not different from that amazing record--long, multi-part pieces with extremely advanced harmonics and terrific playing,

But in no way are these albums interchangable. Holland's work on both these sets is so advanced and intreging, you can listen to these back to back for days on end, in awe of his ability to take a sound, and wind endless, facinating permutations.

Basically, these are long pieces, with long intros, and winding middle sections. In music, most parts of a song run in eight bar cycles. Here, one part can take five minutes to unfold--running through many messures before establishing a pattern. As listeners to rock and blues and tradtional jazz, our ears and minds are not trained for Holland's musical mazes. So hearing the compositions unfold can be jarring, confusing, even to music addicts to whom normal cadance is as natrual as breath. The normal instinct is to put this album aside and run to something more comfortable.

DON'T!

THe playing on this is so good, and the music so magnetic, slowly, with incerasingly loving attention, you are able to internalize this new feel, and are drawn in to every nook and cranny of this heart that beats a little different.

This is not a thinking process, but one of absortion. Holland throws in plenty of yummy hooks to grab us. Listen to the end of "Montaray Suite, pt. 2.' There is a bass and drum duel that, frankly, reminds me of Redding and Mitchel on Hendrix's "If 6 Was 9." (What do you think young Dave was listening to all those years ago?) The interplay here is rocky, bluesy, polyrythmic and simply astounding.

I'm a jazz fan and trombone player, and I've enjoyed most all of Dave Holland's recordings since his involvement with Robin Eubanks. Particularly good were the recent Extended Play with a small group, and What Goes Around with a big band. So I actually hunted down this recording, and was looking forward to it.

What a disappointment. Some of the playing is top notch, especially Billy Kilson and Robin Eubanks, but the writing is unmemorable and overwrought, and the band's ensemble work never seems to catch fire. Recommended for drum fans (Kilson is an amazing player) but for anyone else looking for a modern big band recording, I'd advise checking out Maria Schneider, Ernie Krivda, or Bob Mintzer instead.
