For those not familiar with Richard "Groove" Holmes, this album will say it all. One of the worlds greatest electric organ equilibrists, in his funkiest, most groovy moods.The first track "Groovin'for Mr. G", must be the best and most funky recording I've ever heard. It oozes of dynamic power and having a good time.The music of Richard "Groove" Holmes, is sadly not wide known, albeit he is one of the pioneers in funk and acidjazz hybrids. Not quite as experimental as Jimmy Smith and always with a solid link to the classic jazz roots, he nevertheless dabbles in funky constellations as well.
