Meeting jazz bassist Dave Holland on the street in Manhattan in the 1980s

I remembered this today, and thought I'd write about it, but I'd already written on Facebook about it in 2017. It was 104 words then. — In the 80s, I once ran into jazz bassist Dave Holland in Manhattan. Standing in front of a corrugated iron sheet pulled down in an entryway, he told me he'd just finished recording an album with Steve Coleman and Jack DeJohnette and was waiting to be picked up. When the album came out, the pictures of the players in the booklet were all in front of the same corrugated iron! I concluded we'd been standing downstairs from the Power Station, where it was recorded and mixed. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 20 February 2023)
