AZIZA (Holland, Potter, Loueke, Harland)

Bio

The sheer range of talent and commitment that exudes from this newly minted quartet is positively mouthwatering. Chris Potter is one of the most assured saxophonists on the planet; Lionel Loueke’s blend of contemporary guitar sounds with echoes of the traditions of his native Benin absorbs and intrigues; Eric Harland’s muscular, dynamically sophisticated drumming places a stamp of authority wherever he sets foot; and Dave Holland’s commanding presence and mastery of groove, sound and creative spirit is simply inspirational. This is jazz for today’s generation, played by four masters of the art.

All four members are formidable leaders in their own right – but each of them have a profound understanding of the art of creating magic from a combination of individual skill and group sensibility – and between them, their collective history encompasses crucial contributions to the music of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Charles Lloyd, Sam Rivers, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny, Jim Hall – the list is never-ending.
