Premier bassist Dave Holland leads remarkable Quintet!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Dave Holland leads one of the most intriguing ensembles in Jazz. Merging spontaneity and interplay with sparkling clarity, the group features Canadian trumpet veteran Kenny Wheeler and young lions Steve Coleman on alto and Tonight Show drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith. Yet with all its unique inventiveness, the Quintet also projects an utterly melodic mellowness.#1345 (62 min, Hi-Fi Stereo)"

"I gave this 1 star because it is the exact same gig as the "Live in Freiburg" DVD. So don't buy both. It's a great DVD, but not worth screwing me over when I buy both (how can I return it? It's open). I think the post-production quality on the "Live In Freiburg" version is superior, so buy that one."
