Red Holloway with The Brother Jack McDuff Quartet – Cookin’ Together

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“For this set, tenor saxophonist Red Holloway, who was a regular member of organist Jack McDuff’s group, used McDuff’s sidemen (who included guitarist George Benson) and the organist himself. This Prestige date has thus far only been reissued by the OJC series on LP. The material is comprised of Burt Bacharach’s “Wives and Lovers,” “This Can’t Be Love,” and five Holloway originals, which have more diversity than one might expect. An interesting aspect to the soulful and swinging set is that McDuff made his debut on piano for two songs.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
