Somethin’ Special is a laidback, funky classic which features Richard “Groove” Holmes trading licks with pianist Les McCann, saxophonist Clifford Scott and guitarist Joe Pass, who makes one of his first recorded appearances on this album. It’s a fine, infectious album, highlighed by Holmes and McCann’s stylish solo. Blue Note’s 1997 reissue features two bonus cuts, including one that features saxophonist Ben Webster.
