Dave Holland Featured on NPR Music

Dave HollandNPR Music’s Karen Michel recently got a chance to sit down with jazz master Dave Holland and released a feature article on his career beginnings and musical philosophy.

Holland, who was a “teenaged high-school dropout playing bass with a New Orleans-style jazz band,” eventually found his way into Miles Davis’ band, and of course has since carved out his own path through his compositions and incredible playing.

Holland also tells the story of how he learned to find his own voice in a musical setting, and how he uses young players in his groups. Check out the whole story on the NPR Music site.
