About

The Overtone Quartet
featuring Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Jason Moran, & Eric Harland
For more than four decades, three-time Grammy winner Dave Holland "has defined the best in jazz" (JazzTimes), commanding attention as few bassists ever have. A musician of profound imagination and sophistication, he brings together an extraordinary quartet, collaborating with acknowledged masters of the next generation, each an innovator, respecting a legacy of creative freedom. Grammy-nominated saxophone impresario Chris Potter, 39, is characterized by limitless creativity, a vibrant sense of swing, and a full awareness of past, present, and future. Genre-bending pianist Jason Moran, 34--influenced by opera, classical and world music, and even rap--performs music that's "serious and directed, and some of the best live jazz around now" (The New York Times). Virtuosic drummer Eric Harland, 33, is one of the most in-demand and praised jazz drummers in the world, with more than 30 albums under his belt.
