David Holland Quartet: Conference of the Birds

"While living in London I had an apartment with a small garden. During the summer around 4 or 5 o'clock in the morning, just as the day began, birds would gather here one by one and sing together, each declaring its freedom in song. It is my wish to share this same spirit with other musicians and communicate it to the people." - David Holland

The players:

David Holland, bass
Sam Rivers, reeds, flute
Anthony Braxton, reeds, flute
Barry Altschul, percussion, marimba

You guys are going like this. I know it.
