An excellent tenor saxophonist with an open mind who is best-known for his hard bop-oriented performances and recordings, Ron Holloway started playing music in the seventh grade. He worked in R&B and funk bands early on, and sat in with such players as Sonny Rollins, Freddie Hubbard, and Dizzy Gillespie. After playing with Gil Scott-Heron during 1981-1988, Holloway (sounding a bit like Stanley Turrentine) was in Dizzy Gillespie's last band (1989-1992). He has recorded several albums as a leader for Milestone. ~ Scott YanowPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
