  • Dave Holland is best known as one of the great jazz bassists of his generation. Pepe Habichuela is an awe-inspiring flamenco guitarist. The two of them together, with Josemi and Carlos Carmona on additional guitars as well as a pair of percussionists, prove to be a wonderful combination. Holland brings his own experience to flamenco, subsuming himself in the genre, his bass imitating a voice on the glorious "Camaron," and giving free rein to the percussionists on "Joyride." It's Habichuela's magical fingers that mesmerize, covering the scales as adroitly as any pianist and bringing a rich fullness and a stunning imagination to the sound. But what's really at work here is a group consciousness, an exploration of flamenco, and the listener shares Holland's journey. There's nothing here that's diluted -- this is hardcore flamenco, very much the real thing -- and the hard realism is one of the great pleasures. Even though it can be overwhelming at times, that's in a good way. ~ Chris Nickson
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.83) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "HANDS suggests Holland is right at home, his bass playing recognizable despite the different cadences, arrangements and alternative feel of a music more classical and yet still jazzy."

JazzTimes (p.55) - "Dave Holland has always had an airy touch, an his playing is almost guitar-like on HANDS."
