Red HollowaySax, Strings & Soul ... LP
Prestige, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $13.99
Soul jazz tenor legend Red Holloway blows with strings – but in a way that's hipper than you might think! Benny Golson conducted the orchestra, and Red's playing is very edgey – not in a soporific pillowy mode, but much more in the kind of edgey style that Charlie Parker used on some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Richard Groove HolmesBook Of The Blues Vol 1 ... LP
Warner, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Forget the "blues" in the title – because the set's as much a soul jazz cooker as any of Groove's classic records for Prestige! The format's a bit different than usual – in that Groove solos on Hammond over large arrangements by Onzy Matthews – in a sweet organ/big band ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Groove HolmesComin' On Home ... LP
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good- ... $19.99
A killer from Groove Holmes – one of his rarest albums ever, a one-off session recorded for Blue Note, with a group that includes a young Weldon Irvine! Weldone was a hip up-and-comer at the time – and he not only plays electric piano on the set, but contributes some of the album's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Richard Groove HolmesI'm In The Mood For Love ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1976. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Despite the title of this one – which makes the record sound like a mellow sleepy effort – the style of the record is in that faster disco jazz mode that Groove was using towards the end of his years at Flying Dutchman. The record's got some expansive arrangements that include ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1966. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the biggest hits of the 60s for Richard Groove Holmes – and for good reason too, given the title single of the record!

Richard Groove HolmesNew Groove ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1974. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Funky funky Groove Holmes – one of his tightest albums ever! The set's a monumental batch of organ jazz groovers – recorded with some larger backings from Manny Albam, and a super-dope, super-funk sort of 70s feel that's really outta site! The tracks are lean and very rhythmically ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pacific Jazz, 1962. Very Good ... $5.99
Two of LA's leading soul jazz luminaries – playing head to head in an interesting session that mixes lines on piano and organ! McCann gives the set a good rollicking rhythm, and Holmes' increasing skill on the Hammond makes the set blow out over the top – and the pair get backing by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les HooperLook What They've Done ... LP
Creative World, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The first full album recorded by jazz composer/arranger Les Hooper – one of the hipper young cats hanging around the Kenton scene in the early 70s.

Joe HoustonKicking Back ... LP
Big Town, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Funk LP recorded by 50s tenor legend Joe Houston for the obscure Big Town label.

MPS, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Freddie Hubbard's definitely rolling on this great little set – rolling right back into acoustic jazz territory after a run of smoother soul sessions for bigger labels at the end of the 70s!
