One Of The Masters Of The Hammond B-3!
Steve Stalzle | Denver, Colorado, USA | 04/22/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Richard 'Groove' Holmes was one of the great B-3 players from the 50's through the 80's. His style of funky soul-jazz/bop and grooving with the likes of Jack McDuff, Charles Earland and Shirley Scott and other great musicians proved he had what it takes to jam! This CD just SWINGS! It is so damn FUNKY!
His version of the Duke Pearson standard 'Jeannine' really stands out as one of the great tunes on the album. His take on Bobby Timmons 'This Here' is another burner that swings!
The classic Blues riff of the Title cut really gives Richard and the fellas a chance to lay back and just groove. It's nice!
They also do a nice mid-tempo swing on the standard 'Secret Love'. His cover of Ray Charles' 'Hallelujah, I Love Her So' is another great cooker.
I highly recommend this CD for fans of 'Soul Jazz' and the Hammond B-3 Organ stylings A LA Jimmy McGriff and Shirley Scott & The Late Great Charlie Earland."
