About

Holland has gained the widest exposure in recent decades as the leader of his celebrated and prolifically recorded quintet. Consistently hailed as one of the most exciting small groups in jazz, the piano-less combo includes two founding members, vibraphonist Steve Nelson and SFJAZZ Collective trombonist Robin Eubanks, along with saxophonist Mark Turner and drummer Nate Smith. The quintet brings a charged communal empathy to Holland’s abstract but cohesive themes, whether exploring Afro-Caribbean grooves, funk or straight ahead swing. Taking his open-ended melodic lines in startling directions, the quintet creates the sensation that anything can happen.
