Richard Groove HolmesAmerican Pie ... LP
Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Tasty small group work from Groove – with Mr Holmes himself on organ, and the great Larry Willis on electric piano – coming up with a twin electric organ/piano sound that's similar to the one that Groove used on his Comin On Home LP for Blue Note. The difference here is that things ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Richard Groove HolmesBowl Of Soul ... LP
Loma, 1966. Very Good- ... $6.99
A rare album of organ groovers – cut by Holmes for the tiny Loma subsidiary of Warner Bros. Onzy Matthews leads a group behind Groove's organ, and the larger backing works well with Groove's funky style. The overall feel's a bit like some of the work that Groove cut for World Pacific in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has wear, and some marker on the back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesDancing In the Sun ... LP
Versatile, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a name in marker inside the gatefold and brown tape on the bottom seam. Labels have some marker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesGood Vibrations ... LP
Muse, 1980. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Late magic from Groove – a surprisingly tasty set, especially given the date and the label! The record's one of those late 70s Muse sides that really take the torch from the harder-hitting Prestige sound that had been lost since the early 70s – and although the production style's a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & some marker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Richard Groove HolmesGroover! ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A nice one from the days when Groove was playing with guitarist George Freeman! The core of the tracks on here feature a trio of Holmes, Freeman, and drummer Billy Jackson – and the trio knows how to cook nice and nicely, especially on the original cut "The Walrus", a groovy number ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesLiving Soul ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Very Good ... $7.99
Tight trio material from the legendary Richard Groove Holmes – caught live at Count Basie's Nightclub in Harlem, working hard and heavy with a trio that features Gene Edwards on guitar and George Randall on drums! This live set is the kind of record that beautifully shows why Groove was so ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Blues For Yna Yna". Cover has a half split bottom seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Richard Groove HolmesNew Groove ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1974. Good+ ... $7.99
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesNight Glider ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Sweet 70s funk from the legendary Groove Holmes – an album that has his funky organ riffing nicely over some tight larger arrangements! The style is really great, and a nice departure from the smaller combo Groove Holmes sound of the 60s – more in keeping with his later Blue Note work, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesOnsaya Joy ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
One of Holmes' all time massive recordings, featuring the great groovy title track – "Onsaya Joy" – a monster jam that goes on for fifteen minutes, and doesn't stop grooving at all! Very tough to find these days, but totally worth the price. A solid jammer, and better than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE – Cover is stained and wrinkled on the bottom 3 inches, with peeling inside the gatefold.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesSoul Message ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good ... $6.99
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"! The sound here is much leaner and cleaner than Groove in his Pacific Jazz years – a tight trio approach ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has some staining.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesSpicy ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
Plenty of groove, and plenty of spice – a set that has the heavy Holmes taking off in his best 60s soul jazz formation! The tracks are extremely tight – a bit shorter than usual, but in a really good way – almost to show that Grove Holmes could pack plenty of niceness into a tune ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove HolmesSuper Soul ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
A great little album – one that features Groove playing in front of larger arrangements from Chess Records soul maestro Richard Evans – in a style that has the swinging power of some of Evan's best soul and jazz work at the Chicago label, and which makes for a slightly different ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Richard Groove Holmes & Ernie WattsCome Together ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Two of LA's best soul jazz talents team up in this set of funky tracks with a good LA studio groove to them. Freddy Robinson's on guitar, Wilton Felder's on bass, and King Errison's on congas – and all tracks are played by a small little combo. The best titles are originals by Watts – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gilbert Holmstrom KvintettUtan Misstankar (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Megafon/Moserobie (Sweden), 1965. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $13.99
Brilliant work from an overlooked Swedish group of the 60s – a quintet led by tenorist Gilbert Holmstroms, a player we'd rank right up there with the best European modernists of his generation! The record's got a perfectly pitched sound that blends new overseas freedom with some of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 450 copies!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
HolophonorLight Magnet ... LP
Alpha Pup/World Galaxy, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
A group with vibes in the lead – which might already have been enough to win us over – save for the fact that everything else about the record is great, too – including its production by Wayne Shorter! Forget all about Shorter, though – because although he champions the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download!)
Also available Light Magnet ... CD 11.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Elmo HopeHope-Full ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the clearest portraits of the genius of Elmo Hope on record – a rare later album of mostly solo piano work, plus a few tunes that feature Elmo duetting with wife Bertha! There's no other backing on the set – just Elmo on piano, playing in an angular mode that's some of his most ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese pressing! Cover has some light fading on the spine, but is nice overall.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Elmo Hope EnsembleHope From Rikers Island (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1963/1978. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An amazing album – and a really unique slice of the underground of jazz in the 60s! The session was put together in 1963 by Walt Dickerson, and was conceived as an attempt to draw attention to the incredible amount of great jazz players who were then currently serving time in prison for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
