ON THIS DAY OTD: (Tuesday) September 5 - Saxophonist Hollis Gentry III died on this day in 2006, in Valencia Park. He was 51.
Hollis Gentry III: One of area's most vital musicians (Michael J. Williams, San Diego Union Tribune) : “Hollis never attained national acclaim, though he was widely known around Southern California and did have his flirtations with fame, having been a sideman with several artists of national renown, including guitarist Larry Carlton and vocalist Al Jarreau. He was an original member of Fattburger along with Evans and, after leaving and forming his own electric band, Neon, would return for appearances with that hugely popular pop-jazz outfit.”
Allmusic.com Review - For The Record (Dave Nathan): “The debut album of Hollis Gentry III has a musical program of classic and jazz standards. But don't be misled. This is not an album where Gentry and cohorts recite melody lines with a few nods to improvisation. Quite the contrary, this is a session featuring startling and imaginative extemporization right from the opening note.”
