Fraser Hollins Quartet with special guest Myron Walden

Fraser Hollins has been praised as “one of Canada’s great bassists.” Don Thompson – Canadian Jazz Multi-Instrumentalist. A priority in his artistic growth has been to develop versatility in many styles and idioms because of his sincere love for many musical cultures and genres. This has proven an invaluable quality for him as he has led an enriching musical life for the past 15 years in Montreal, and, for a few years, in New York City.

For the last 10 years Walden’s brought a unique brand of ardor to the bandstand, and it’s become a signature of sorts. The music on this live date by Momentum, one of his newest ensembles, is marked by a sizzling sincerity — the kind of emotion that puts listeners on the edge of their seats.
