In his latest release, Pathways, bassist Dave Holland shapes his octet into a groove-heavy, blue-flame intensity with writing that is state-of-the-art hard bop. "Pathways" opens the album with the horns setting the pace as SmuylanвЂ™s baritone leads the melody with commanding solos. The horns riff hard while Nelson plays the vibraphone with a modernistic feel. Next up is вЂњHowвЂ™s Never?вЂ� Holland starts it off with a bass solo as Nate Smith eases in with some rhythm. The marimba gives it a sophisticated feel but the horns вЂ” specifically Hart on alto sax backed by SmulyanвЂ™s baritone вЂ” gets into the groove vein of greasy funk.
