Oli Holland’s Jazz Attack!

Oli Holland’s Jazz Attack!
 
German bassist and composer Olivier Holland once again calls the crème de la crème of young Jedi masters (no, not Padwuan learners, masters!) to hit Auckland with a short tour of this powerful and skilled band. 
On the menu this time are brand new compositions, a debut performance of works that Oli is going to record with jazz giants Geoffrey Keezer and Terreon Gully in Germany around April this year. And you will be the first to hear them! And you will be in tears if you miss this! The menu will be enriched and contrasted by some skillfully arranged standards.
 
Olivier Holland: Bass
Misha Kourkov: tenor
Nick Dow: Piano
Daniel Waterson: drums
Michael Howell: guitar
Finn Scholes: trumpet
Special guest: Roger Manins on tenor!
