Bassist Corcoran Holt leads a quintet featuring the music from his recently released album, The Mecca, his debut recording as a leader. One of the important new artists on the jazz scene over the past 10 years, Holt credits the great Curtis Fuller for giving him his first break as he has gone on to work with Kenny Garrett, Steve Turre, Javon Jackson and many others. The New York Times described his music saying, “There’s the sturdy, Southern-tinged swing feel; the proud, muscular harmonies beneath the lead lines; the occasional hand-drum rhythms, suggesting a lifelong exposure to go-go music.” Although best known as a bassist, Holt also performs on the djembe, the West African drum, which started playing before picking up the bass.
