Dave Holland Quartet – Conference of the Birds (Reissued on 180g Vinyl).
Conference of the Birds is a studio album by the Dave Holland Quartet, recorded in 1972 and released in 1973. It is jazz bassist Holland's second collaboration with composer and saxophonist Anthony Braxton, as well as his second album on ECM Records. The liner notes describe how birds would congregate each morning outside Holland's London apartment and join with one another in song.
Recorded on November 30, 1972 at Allegro Studio, New York City Cover art: Pueblo Designs and The Book of Signs. Printed in W. Germany.
Yet Conference of the Birds avoids any hint of exotica (Holland himself has noted the title refers to mornings outside his London flat, not the 12th century Persian poem). And while the twin saxophones ignite the Ornette At the Golden Circle Stockholm stop/start dynamics of Interception, they also float joyfully along the twisting melody statement of Four Winds, free to screech and honk when the spirit moves them, yet always responsive to the steady swinging pulse anchoring the quartet.
What a group the bassist David Holland convened for an album named after a Persian Sufi classic. Sam Rivers and Anthony Braxton, on flutes and reed instruments, were structural innovators and freethinkers, deciding how wide-open improvisation could conjure stories. Mr. Holland and the drummer Barry Altschul knew how to steer them or set them loose, with no chordal instrument to hold them in. Thoughtfully and playfully, the diverse voices sing. But the guitarist Bill Frisell is the most striking musician here for his omnivorous diversity in tone: his guitar is solemnly organ-esque on In the Year of the Dragon, squawking with static on Two Women From Padua, and Lynch-ian on the eerie, unmoored Fiasco.
Conference of the Birds is an album by the Dave Holland Quartet, recorded in 1972 and released in 1973. Holland's compositions for the album had been performed at a New York City concert by a group including Randy Brecker on trumpet, Michael Brecker on tenor sax, Ralph Towner on guitar, Holland on bass, and.
