Bassist Dave Holland’s new album, Another Land, will take you to interesting places. Clarinetist’s Ben Goldberg’s latest, with its guitar/bass/drums core, might do the same.
Dave Holland’s Prism tells stories, several of which are very effective. Scofield’s, like his earlier Überjam releases, extends the jam-band esthetic into jazz without completely giving in to it. And neither of them would be as they are without the great looming shadow of Miles Davis.
