Christopher Hollyday


Among the “Little Lions” from the later ’80s, altoist Christopher Hollyday created a big mix when he appeared in the picture, but maintained a surprisingly low profile following the early ’90s. He began playing alto when he was nine, created quickly, and was playing in night clubs when he was 14, the entire year when he documented his first record by himself Jazzbeat label. In the past, he was seriously inspired by Charlie Parker, but a couple of years later Hollyday nearly sounded such as a clone of Jackie McLean. In 1988, he got a group in to the Community Vanguard, and the next season he toured with Maynard Ferguson’s big music group. During 1989-1992, Hollyday documented four CDs for Novus, and was needs to develop his very own tone of voice when he was slipped through the label.
