Christopher Hollyday

Jazz's younger generation is obsessed with the 1960's, when the music reached its greatest harmonic and rhythmic complexity and then burst wide open into modal and free jazz. Christopher Hollyday saxophonists in his 20's has steeped in the music of the mid-60's.

Hollyday has impressive technique in music that bespeaks ambition and determination. He has a bright, confident tone that almost always sounds buoyant, and he can riffle through scales and arpeggios at top speed.

Hollyday,devotes his sets to modal jazz - uptempo pieces, a ballad by McCoy Tyner and a midtempo piece by his pianist, Larry Goldings -which bring out the influence of Jackie McLean in his playing.
