Dave Holland: Processional

"Processional" is another excellent example of Holland stretching the boundaries of a traditional jazz form. The tune is essentially a 12-bar blues with some altered chord structures. Oh, yeah, and it's in 5/4. Dave tears up the meter on his solo; he's clearly in command. Eubanks's playing is also very expressive here. It is interesting to hear how the band sounds with guitar as the chording instrument as opposed to the vibraphone. Each instrument adds a unique texture and set of overtones to the music.
