Ones All (Intuition 2148)
Dave Holland (bass).

Rating: 85/100 (learn more)
Unlike most other solo bassists, Holland prefers the instrument's middle and low range. He doesn't hang out in the stratosphere, which gives his work a refreshing, meaty texture. The sound of his bass is extremely well reproduced on this CD. Holland slowly reveals this tune, phrase by phrase, weaving bits of the melody with angular phrases. It is another fine example of how his playing can spellbind an audience.
