R.I.P Red Holloway

It was with much sadness that I learned today of the passing of American saxman Red Holloway. Red, in tandem with Sonny Stitt, played a memorable session at the Corner House in July 1981 that many of us still recall fondly. (Photo left with Malcolm Saul, Scotty Adair)
Not many sax players could hold their own alongside Stitt but Red, who was comparatively unknown over here at the time, did it beautifully on both alto and tenor. Listen to The Way You Look Tonight from the duo.
I'd heard reports of his failing health but it still came as a shock to hear that he'd died yesterday.
Red Holloway was 84.
