Aziza with Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Lionel Loueke, Eric Harland
Elb PhilharmoniePlatz der Deutschen Einheit 1, 20457 Hamburg, Germany
The new band led by double bass legend Dave Holland shows a wide variety of influences from Latin, Caribbean and African music. All four musicians have worked together in other groups, and smooth and flowing ensemble playing is the result. This is music with a strong rhythmic base, featuring a hard-edged groove in numbers like the title song »Aziza Dance«, which hints at West African mythology.
