Legendary jazz drummer Bob Holz is ready to release his latest album "Visions: Coast To Coast Connections" in February. It features the work of iconic jazz bassist Stanley Clarke, along with Mahavishnu Orchestra bassist Ralphe Armstrong, who also joined Holz and his band on this latest work of art. The new album features 10-tracks, beginning the exciting, up-tempo opening of "Split Decision," which allows members of his band their time in the spotlight. They slow the tempo down for the bluesier feel of "Espresso Decision" as lead singer Dave Porter is introduced. Holz and his band infuse a reggae groove to the modern jazz piece "Jammin Man," before you're taken on the seven-minute jazz fusion adventure of "Pink Fur." The album wraps up with the quieter touch of "Light & Day" and the up-beat, steady pace of the nine-minute closer "Flat Out" as Holz shines behind the drum kit.
