Redd Holt…In His Own Words Chicago Jazz Magazine’s Feature Interview

Redd Holt…In His Own Words Chicago Jazz Magazine’s Feature Interview

February 4, 2020

Legendary drummer Redd Holt talks about his life in music including how he got his start on the drums, his years of recording and touring with Ramsey Lewis, the inspiration of his new recording and much more.

Holt first started playing drums as a teenager and first met his collaborators Ramsey Lewis and Eldee Young while still in school in Chicago. Upon returning from military duty he re- connected with Lewis and Young to form the Ramsey Lewis Trio which produced the world wide hit, The "In" Crowd.

In 1966 Young and Holt split with Lewis and formed their own group, Young-Holt Unlimited, which went on to achieve commercial success as an instrumental soul band. After the group's dissolution in 1974 Holt continued on as Redd Holt Unlimited, playing under this name into the 1990s, and worked in jazz education in Illinois.

He founded the Gumption Artist Workshop, which was active from 1980 to 1985, and played internationally, including at the 1988 Montreux Jazz Festival and in Singapore in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

His latest recording is on Treehouse Records It's A Take!
