I just learned that Red Young joined Eric Burdon (The Animals) on a world tour. Red is exceptional soul jazz musician and one of a kind Hammond B3 player. Last time I saw him in Dallas area doing Wednesday jazz nights in Django on the Parkway club in Addisson. Once I even had a chance to play entire set with him and the band over there.
Well, it's good for him but Dallas music life will miss him for an entire year, sadly. Django has became really bright spot on DFW jazz scene thanks to Red & friends. A lot of very fine musicians were coming there drawn by his talent and energy. I know he was a co-founder of Django, don't know what will happen to it now.
So, if you're happen to be somewhere on the way of this touring band catch him at the concert. He sure will have some spots in the show to do some of his Hammond magic.
