worked briefly with Jimi Hendrix.
After leaving Davis he collaborated with another Davis alumnus, pianist Chick Corea, in a cooperative group named Circle, which also included multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxton. To this day Braxton continues his experimental musical quests, always looking for new modes of expression. As a member of Braxton's quartet, Holland has toured all over the globe.
Braxton played on Holland's first recording under his own name, The Conference of the Birds, in the early 1970s. One of the best swinging documents of the new jazz music, it is one of my favorite recordings of the period and one that I go back to again and again. Eventually, Holland became a freelancer, working and recording with a wide range of musicians from all styles of music.
