Dave Holland stands shoulder to shoulder among other jazz giants like Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Stan Getz, and Hank Jones. In his five decade career, Holland has played and recorded with all of them, and many others.

He’s consistently pushed his musical boundaries with his own composing and with his own ensembles as well – his quartet, quintet, and big band. In addition to the esteem in which his fellow musicians hold him, Holland has also received honorary doctorates from Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), Berklee College of Music, and the New England Conservatory and was made an Honorary Member of the Royal Academy of Music (UK). In 2017 he was named a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts.
