Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2011-05-04With Rick Holland and Evan Dobbins leading the way on trumpet and trombone, the Little Big Band makes contemporary big band jazz. Currently out of New York, Rick Holland received his doctorate from Michigan State University, so there’s your local spin. “Trilby” is perfectly executed and considering Mr. Holland received his doctorate in classical performance, that’s to be expected. While every note is placed exactly where it should be, there’s no fire here. There’s something to be said for perfection, but I like my jazz a little rough around the edges. Rebecca Ruth
