Dave Holland (b. Oct 1, 1946): bassist and composer. Today we examined his output with Miles Davis, solo and collaborative efforts throughout the 70s and 80s, and finally his own projects in the 90s and 2000s.
Today's subject was Lionel Hampton, legendary jazz vibraphonist. The show surveyed his early work as percussionist and vibraphonist in big bands, through his playing in Benny Goodman's small groups, to his career as bandleader and frequent collaborator.
The subject of today's profile was Charles Tolliver, trumpeter, composer, arranger, bandleader, and co-founder of Strata-East, one of the first artist-owned labels in jazz. This survey of his music passed from his early sides with Jackie McLean and the Gerald Wilson Orchestra to his big-band arrangements as leader of Music Inc. in the 70's.
