Red Holloway
In the Red

Red Holloway went into the Van Gelder Studios and came out with one of the hottest tenor quartet recordings in a long time. Coming out of Chicago, when the tenor was king, Red has the best qualities of two other Windy City tenor-men: he combines the big tone of Gene Ammons and the whirlwind execution of Johnny Griffin. Backed by the unbeatable rhythm section of Norman Simmons, Peter Washington and Kenny Washington, Red wails through jazz classics by Harold Land, Duke Ellington, Dexter Gordon and Herbie Hancock as well as a couple of originals by himself and pianist Simmons.

Red Holloway- tenor saxophone/alto saxophone; Norman Simmons- piano; Peter Washington- bass; Kenny Washington- drums

Tracks: The Chase; In My Solitude; Snu-Fu; The Gypsy; Claudia; Watermelon Man; A Tear in My Heart; Rapture.
