Richard ”Groove” Holmes ”Dancing In The Sun”

Richard ”Groove” Holmes

”Dancing In The Sun”
( LP Versatile/Essential Records, 1977 )
Catalog # MSG 6003

1 Misty (12:50)
2 Dancing in the Sun (11:03)
3 Calypso Holiday (7:13)
4 Let’s Groove (8:37)
5 Highway of Life (2:59)

Groove Holmes is definitely dancing in the sun here — working with full arrangements from Mario Sprouse, in a sweetly soulful style that’s not unlike Johnny Hammond at the time! Groove still plays Hammond on most numbers — but also a bit of mini Korg too — and although the backdrops are in a fully-arranged jazz funk mode, there’s still a strong focus on Holmes’ keyboard lines up front, which still get plenty of space to stretch out and do their thing. Sprouse plays a bit of keyboards on the record too — and titles include a remake of “Misty”, plus “Let’s Groove”, “Dancing In the Sun”, “Highway Of Life”, and “Calypso Holiday”.
