Bassist Dave Holland has been at the forefront of experimental, forward-thinking jazz ever since his formative years playing in Miles Davis' fusion ensemble. His 2013 album, Prism, finds Holland returning to his crossover funk roots with an able-bodied quartet. Featured here are former Tonight Show guitarist Kevin Eubanks, pianist/Rhodes keyboardist Craig Taborn, and drummer Eric Harland. All of these musicians have reputations for playing adventurous, genre-bending styles of jazz, making them perfectly suited for the project at hand. Holland's fourth outing on his own Dare2 Records, Prism follows his 2008 sextet date Pass It On, his 2010 octet album Pathways, and his 2010 flamenco-inspired Hands.
A debut album from this underrated American psychedelic band was released in 1969 on RCA Victor and combined the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe with grandiose progressive rock arrangements. This brilliantly recorded album was very diverse, but consisted mostly of dark, atmospheric and usually short tracks based on strong Hammond organ-guitar interplay and rich vocal harmonies. Glass Prism music may be described as early hard-progressive rock crossed with ambitious psychedelic pop like early Procol Harum, Vanilla Fudge, Ford Theatre and Bloomsbury People. In 1970 the band released their second and musically less successful LP On Joy And Sorrow. This CD edition has been carefully remastered from the original, analogue source and sounds great!
