JAZZ ATTACK (“the fourth is strong with you’) doesn’t need much introduction but for those who missed their previous concerts: You are in for a BANG, a night of power, fun, groove and non-straight-ahead excitement. On the menu this time are brand new (!) compositions by band-leader and bassist Olivier Holland, some of which will be recorded in Germany around April of this year. The JA lineup of Auckland heavyweights this time features Jedi Master Roger Manins whose fiery improvisations and sizzling contribution to JA’s horn section will make you “rethink you life”.

May the fourth be with us all!

Olivier Holland is a German bassist and composer who has worked with countless national as well as international artists. His long music career, which began in 1989, has seen him migrate to NZ in 2002, infiltrate the NZ jazz scene and, teach at the University of Auckland Jazz Department since 2004. He still frequently travels across many ditches to perform and record with internationals, and no less than a further three CD albums are on the “recordings-to-do-list” for the next 10 month; those will add to his discography which is already 23 albums strong.
