residing within these grooves. There is also empathy to spare. Pathways, recorded live at New York's Birdland and the first release by the Holland Octet, is tightly woven, devoid of bloat, and constantly in motion. Holland, in his multi-decade career, has worked within every conceivable format, and he smartly positions the octet precisely where it should be by definition, midway between the standard small-group configuration and the all-bases-covered grandness of a big band.

With the two extra saxophones and the trumpet of Alex Sipiagin, Holland's band sounds a lot like his standard quintet (vibes, not piano) but filled out more. One of his best albums ever with a lot of energy and fabulous playing. And the live setting at Birdland in NYC makes it even more vital and exciting.
