Adam Holzman toert de hele wereld over met de Steven Wilson Band. Holzman, bekend als bandleider van Miles Davis, komt naar Nederland! Hij doet 1 show en die show speelt hij in Poppodium Duycker!

Naast de Steven Wilson Band was hij een aantal jaren bandleider van Miles Davis en speelde hij met grootheden als Chaka Kahn, Wayne Shorter en de band Steps Ahead. Voor zijn innovatieve toetsenwerk werd hij veelvuldig onderscheiden en scoort hij hoog in de jaarlijkse polls van beste keyboardspelers.

Adam Holzman speelt een belangrijke rol op albums als “The Raven That Refused To Sing,” “Hand.Cannot.Erase,” “4 1/2” en “To The Bone”. Daarnaast heeft hij 10 solo-albums op zijn naam staan waaronder “The Deform Variatons”. Dit solo pianoalbum bracht hem in 2015 de motivatie om ook solo het podium op te klimmen. Adam improviseert met o.a. metal, rock en een aantal jazzclassics.

Een unieke kans om deze bekende toetsenist, in een intieme sfeer, te leren kennen en te genieten van een waar talent!

While on tour with the Steven Wilson Band, Adam Holzman will play an one-off, exclusive show in The Netherlands at Poppodium Duycker.

Keyboard player Adam Holzman was a member of the Miles Davis Band from 1985 to 1989. He performed with the trumpet legend in more than 200 concerts worldwide. He can be heard on the albums “Tutu,” “Live Around the World” and “The Complete Montreux” box set (all on Warner Bros.). In 1988 he became Miles’s musical director. For his session and live performances, Adam was praised by the New York Times for his “innovative keyboard work,” and by Keyboard magazine as “one of the most promising synth soloists.”

Adam has also performed and recorded extensively with Grover Washington, Jr., Wayne Shorter, Chaka Khan, Steps Ahead, Wallace Roney, Michel Petrucciani and many others. Adam is now touring and recording with British rocker Steven Wilson. Adam is featured on Steven’s acclaimed “The Raven That Refused To Sing,” “Hand.Cannot.Erase,” “4 1/2” and “To The Bone” albums, as well as the concert DVD “Get All You Deserve.” Adam is currently in the middle of a world tour with Steven Wilson which will go into 2019.

Adam has released 10 albums as a solo artist and with his band, Adam Holzman & Brave New World. His most recent full band CD of hard-edged jazz-rock is titled Truth Decay, just released in March 2018. The album features many guest artists, including appearances by members of the Steven Wilson band and Adam’s longtime New York-based group, Brave New World. The album also includes some vocal tracks, such as a cover of “A House Is Not A Motel” by the 60’s band Love. So it is a true “jazz-rock” affair. Truth Decay has already received some great reviews. (The Deform Variations, a solo piano CD recorded while on tour with Steven Wilson, was released in 2015.) Adam has been nominated for ‘best electric jazz keyboard player’ several times by Keyboard Magazine. In 2007 he was awarded by the Jazz Journalists Association for his work co-producing (with Bob Belden) the Miles Davis box set “The Cellar Door Sessions” (Sony). Adam is now gaining attention in the rock world, placing high in the ‘Best Keyboard Player’ category in Classic Rock/Prog Magazine polls for the past several years.
