David Holland Quartet - Conference of the Birds (1973)


An avant-garde jazz classic. I was gonna post a different Holland record, cause this is the one that everyone knows, but what if you've never heard it? I couldn't live with myself.

Track listing:
1. Four Winds
2. Q & A
3. Conference of the Birds
4. Interception
5. Now Here (Nowhere)
6. See-Saw

Deluge

  4. 'The Conference Of The Birds' is the title of an 1177AD poem by Attar Of Nishapur. I don't think he heard this album or the one by Om, but I could be mistaken.

  6. Holland-Emerald Tears solo bass is one that anyone who has not heard it they should hear.

  8. Yeah, pretty much required listening. Always up for this one. It never fails to thrill and never gets old.
