Acclaimed double-bassist Dave Holland might have made his name performing with Miles Davis, Chick Corea and Anthony Braxton, but it is arguably on his own recordings that some of his most rewarding performances can be heard. Stuart Nicholson caught up with Holland before the release of his latest album, Good Hope, which matches him once more with his hotshot Crosscurrents trio featuring saxophonist Chris Potter and percussionist Zakir Hussain
