Art of Conversation
THE ART OF CONVERSATION marks the first time bassist/composer Dave Holland and pianist/composer Kenny Barron have recorded their duo performances. These titans began touring together throughout Europe and the United States in 2012 and this album reflects two years of Holland and Barron finessing their empathy, chemistry and repertoire. Out of an expansive body of work that they've cultivated, THE ART OF CONVERSATION offers 10 compositions of originals and standards that exemplify their individual and combined musical ingenuity. With THE ART OF CONVERSATION capturing only a small portion of their still expanding repertoire, this disc hopefully marks just the beginning of more artful conversations between the two.
