  • Major Holley junior (bijnaam 'Mule') (Detroit, 10 juli 1924 - Maplewood, 25 oktober 1990) was een Amerikaanse jazzbassist, die onder meer speelde met Charlie Parker en Oscar Peterson.Holley speelde aanvankelijk viool en tuba, maar stapte tijdens zijn diensttijd in de marine over op de contrabas. Na zijn diensttijd trad hij op met onder meer Dexter Gordon, Charlie Parker en Ella Fitzgerald en maakte hij duo-opnamen met pianist Oscar Peterson. Hij was naast Charlie Smith ook lid van Petersons trio.In de periode 1954-1956 was hij studiomuzikant voor de BBC in Londen. In 1958 maakte hij als lid van de band van Woody Herman een tournee door Zuid-Amerika. Na terugkeer in Amerika was hij bassist in het kwintet van Al Cohn en Zoot Sims. In de jaren zestig was hij weer studiomuzikant en speelde hij onder meer met het trio van Kenny Burrell, met Coleman Hawkins, Roy Eldridge, Quincy Jones en het orkest van Duke Ellington. Van 1967 tot 1970 gaf hij les aan Berklee College of Music in Boston.

  • Major Holley (Detroit, 10 luglio 1924 – Maplewood, 25 ottobre 1990) è stato un contrabbassista jazz statunitense.Fu molto richiesto per l'umorismo che riusciva a trasmettere nei gruppi in cui lavorava e nel pubblico che lo ascoltava.Di particolare rilevanza è la tecnica che usava nei solo che ricorda quella di Slam Stewart; la tecnica consiste, oltre che nell'impiego dell'archetto, nell'impiego della voce come raddoppio al solo stesso. Nel 1977 registrò un disco, Two Big Mice, in cui compare anche Slam Stewart; le differenti tecniche strumentali emergono plasmando un gradevole contrappunto.Nel 1950, Holley lavorò come musicista di studio con la BBC in Inghilterra. Fece inoltre parte dell'orchestra di Quincy Jones, di Woody Herman e Duke Ellington (1964) e di numerose piccole formazioni di Roy Eldridge, Coleman Hawkins, il trio di Kenny Burrell, Lee Konitz, Michel Legrand, Milt Buckner, Jay McShann e formò un duo con Zoot Sims.
