The American Jazz Museum issued the following press release yesterday:
We regret to announce that the January 22nd Jammin' at the Gem Dave Holland Quintet concert has been canceled. Mr. Holland’s wife will have unanticipated open-heart surgery on January 18th and has in fact canceled the remainder of his tour. At this time, no re-scheduling or make-up concert is planned. We await a statement about this from Mr. Holland’s management, which we will release to the media as quickly as possible.I extend my best wishes to the Holland family. Still, the cancellation is terribly disappointing. As I wrote in a Jammin' at the Gem season preview, I was "positively giddy" in anticipation of the performance. The embedded clip from October of last year provides a taste of the brilliance we'll be missing.
