Dave Holland, one of the greatest upright bass players in jazz history, debuts his aptly-named Prismproject in Los Angeles with this performance. The band features ingenious keyboardist Craig Taborn, former SFJAZZ Collective drummer Eric Harland and Kevin Eubanks, a brilliant guitarist who led The Tonight Show band for years.
Combining the celebrated virtuosity of Taborn on electric and acoustic pianos and the soulful fire of Eubanks in the front line with Harland’s matchless finesse and expressiveness, this decidedly plugged-in quartet is an explosive outlet for Holland at his best.
Electric guitarist John Scofield returns to Royce Hall. This time around, he presents his raucous, electronic-infused Überjam Band featuring Andy Hess on bass, rhythm guitarist Avi Bortnick, and Tony Masonbehind the drum kit. Together they create a dizzying fusion of jazz, funk, atmospheric and electronic music.
