John, do you know who the tenor soloist is?:cheers: good old school tenor! Love it. Thanks for posting.
Hey mrpeebee. I would have to go with what you have found as well (Red Holloway) but it is only a guess based upon the States Record Company history.John, do you know who the tenor soloist is?
:cheers:I LOVE Red Holloway!
Phenomenal sound and a phenomenal player.
I have a very nice CD called 'Brother Red' and got it signed by Red Holloway himself during one of his visits in NL. I went together with my alto buddy to a concert he did with the Dtuch trio of Rein de Graaff in Voorburg, but we had traffic jam issues and arrived very late (at the time the concert should have started). When walking towards the theater I spotted bass player Koos Serierse, who was also late for the concert (same traffic jam). We offered him to carry his stuff towards the theater and arrived free of charge through the artist entrance directly into the concert room of the theater, while the guests who payed where still waiting in the lobby. We sat down on the first row of the theater, watching the rhythm section build up and doing the soundcheck. At that moment Red Holloway came sitting next to me and we started talking. I brought his 'Brother Red' CD with me and told him we played one of his numbers (Redwood City) with our own band. Red than offered to sign my CD with a personal inscription.:cheers:
Just wish more players would keep the older styles alive and kickin'.
It appears (from the session file-page 8) that McKinley Easton was on bari and Lucius Washington on tenor on "The Hex".Sounds a lot like Red Holloway and I think the baritone could be Alvin Red Tyler.
Thanks John, don't know those players.It appears (from the session file-page 8) that McKinley Easton was on bari and Lucius Washington on tenor on "The Hex".
