Dave Holland (bass).

Composed by Dave Holland


Recorded: Oslo, August 1977


Rating: 84/100 (learn more)

"Under Redwoods" features some of the most lyrical, harmonically folksy playing of any track I've heard by Dave Holland. It's a ballad, and Holland takes his time stating the theme, adding double and triple stops to fill out the harmony. He plays it cool throughout, never letting his prodigious technique get in the way of telling this bucolic story.
