Saxophoniste US né le 2 Février 1926 à Greensboro (Caroline du Nord). Red Prysock est décédé le 19 Juillet 1993 à Chicago (Illinois).

US saxophonist born on February 2, 1926 in Greensboro (North Carolina). Red Prysock was an American rhythm and blues tenor saxophonist. He first gained attention playing with Tiny Bradshaw's band (he played the lead sax solo on Bradshaw's big hit "Soft"). He left Bradshaw over a disagreement about dress code. Bradshaw's band at the time was called "Tiny Bradshaw and his Highlanders," and he insisted that all his musicians wear kilts onstage. Prysock refused.
He signed with Mercury records as a bandleader, and had his first hit R&B instrumental, "Wiggles," in 1954. In 1955 he joined the band that played at Alan Freed's stage shows, and had his biggest hit for Mercury, the rhythm and blues instrumental classic "Hand Clappin'." He played on several hit records by his brother, the singer Arthur Prysock, in the 1960s.
Red Prysock is deceased on July 19, 1993 in Chicago (Illinois).
