Misty

LP (Item 7774) Prestige, 1966 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 5

One of the biggest hits of the 60s for Richard Groove Holmes – and for good reason too, given the title single of the record! After the success of Groove's version of "Misty" – originally issued in long form on the Soul Message album, but presented here as a shorter single version – Holmes went into the studio to lay down this set of cuts with a similar feel – hard swingin', short hard takes on standard and pop material, all set to hard-burning Hammond from a combo that features Gene Edwards on guitar and George Randall on drums. Despite the familiarity of the titles, the band just cooks – with hard choppy playing, and some of the nimblest solos that Groove ever laid down. Great stuff, and well worth the "hit" status it received in the 60s – with titles that include "Misty", "Summertime", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "The More I See You", "What Now My Love", and "There Will Never Be Another You".

Fried Buzzard
Cadet, 1965. Very Good+
A live set recorded in 1965 – and more straight ahead soul jazz than Lou's later funk work on Blue Note, even though Leo Morris/Idris Muhammad is on drums. The album is a nice transitional session, though, with a good lounge jazz feel, and some nice long cuts like "Fried Buzzard", ... LP, Vinyl record album
