The Young Holt Trio
This US soul-jazz group was formed in Chicago in 1965 with Eldee Young (7 January 1936, Chicago, Illinois, USA; bass), Red Holt (b. Isaac Holt, 16 May 1932, Rosedale, Mississippi, USA; drums) and Hysear Don Walker (piano). Young and Holt both studied at Chicago’s American Conservatory Of Music. They later joined the Ramsey Lewis Trio and were featured on two of the group’s best-known singles, “The ‘In’ Crowd” and “Hang On Sloopy” (both 1965). The bass player and drummer then broke away to pursue their own direction.
