    “New music from Dave Holland is always good news.” – A Blog Supreme/NPR Jazz

    “It’s this highly compelling combination that – along with outstanding source material (old and new) and eight uncompromisingly inventive players (all leaders in their own right) – makes Pathways a very welcome addition to Holland’s growing discography.” – All About Jazz

    “He’s been called the greatest composing jazz bassist since Charles Mingus, with little argument, and he is a soloist surpassed by few in technique.” – Spinner

    “Together, these eight musicians combine the flexibility and tonal and textural range of a polished big band with the intimacy and in-the-moment daring of a seemingly telepathic small group.” – JazzTimes

    “In turn, to savor the variety of material is sublime to say the least, it’s uncanny that Holland composes so keenly to tailor the tunes for the players, but even more so to observe the way the musicians react as they play.” – Glide Magazine
