Holland will teach a master class before performing with his quintet at 7:30 p.m. in Dinkelspiel Auditorium (the class is open to all jazz musicians not just bassists).
Tickets for the Dave Holland Quintet performance, available by phone at (650) 725-2787 or at the Ticket Office, are $28; $26 for students and senior citizens; or $4 for Stanford students with valid ID.

The Jazz Workshop launched the Second Sunday series in the spring to showcase top jazz artists from the Bay Area and beyond in performances and master classes. The series will run from October through May. A schedule of upcoming concerts and classes is posted at the website
Holland is considered among the most accomplished jazz composers for bass. In 1968, Miles Davis recruited Holland, who joined Davis's New York-based quintet. In 1970, Holland co-founded the free-jazz group Circle with Anthony Braxton, Chick Corea and Barry Altschul and, in 1975, he formed the Gateway Trio with Jack DeJohnette and John Abercrombie. He has worked with a slew of top jazz artists, including Stan Getz, Sam Rivers, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Kenny Wheeler, Thelonius Monk and Joe Henderson.
