When I was a teenager, an album named Blow by Blow was released by Jeff Beck. I’d heard about him, but didn’t hear his music on the radio. This album was a BIG DEAL and very popular. The last tune on the album, Diamond Dust was written by “Holland” and later, I had a friend (Dancing Bob) who was convinced for YEARS that this MUST be Dave Holland, the jazz bassist. This beautiful composition was, in fact, written by Bernie Holland.
By the mid-80s, I’d figured out who really wrote the tune, it didn’t really sound like a Dave Holland song anyway.
Mystery finally solved at the Jazz Guitar Forum.
