Richard Groove HolmesAfter Hours ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1962. Used ... $8.99
An obscure early one from Groove Holmes! Despite the title, this one's actually a nice batch of pretty groovy tracks – played by Groove with two different trios, both of which give him plenty of room to stretch out, and prove that he always worked best in smaller ensembles! Lots of nice originals on the session – including "Groove Bird", "Do It My Way", "Minor Surgery", and "Sweatin". CD

Richard Groove HolmesBowl Of Soul ... LP
Loma, 1966. Very Good ... $9.99
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 late 60s – where he was operating as the main soloist, and given a lot of room to move around. Highlights include two nice originals – "RFK Flies Home" and "Bowl Of Soul" – plus the groovy "How Long How Long Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has a 3 inch split in the top seam at the opening.)

Richard Groove HolmesDancing In the Sun ... CD
Versatile/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
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 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". CD
(Part of the "Versatile: Find Out Fusion" series!)

Richard Groove HolmesGroove ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An early cooker from Richard Groove Holmes – and one of the most important Hammond jazz sets to come out of the west coast at the time! At a point when most folks think the east has a lock on the instrument, Groove bursts forth here with a great hard-edged sound – proof that the LA scene didn't just go for cool jazz and the occasional hardbop date – and the start of a great run of records that would have Holmes sounding great all through the 60s! The lineup is nicely unusual, too – with guitar from Chicagoan George Freeman, then on the west coast – and a key part of Holmes' group for years – and trombone from the excellent Lawrence Tricky Lofton, a player who rarely recorded, but made some great sides with Carmell Jones. The group also features Les McCann on piano, a nice combo with the organ – plus Ben Webster on tenor and Ron Jefferson on drums. Titles include "Good Groove", "That Healin' Feelin'", "Them That's Got", and "Deep Purple". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo Liberty pressing.)

Richard Groove HolmesStar Wars/Close Encounters (with bonus track) ... CD
Versatile/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
Groove Holmes runs through a set of famous 70s film themes – or tunes associated with films – working here with larger backing arrangements from Mario Sprouse! The style is smooth, but still mighty nice – as the tunes are long, and there's lots of solo space for Groove (who plays a bit of mini Korg on the set next to his organ!) and flautist Karen Josephs, who also gets a lot of solos space too. Sprouse plays all the rest of the keys – Fender Rhodes, Korg, and piano – and the full feel of the tunes has a very soundtracky sound, more in a cop show mode! Titles include "Gonna Fly Now", "Carry On My Wayward Son", "Star Wars", and "Close Encounters". CD also features a bonus unreleased version of "You Light Up My Life". CD
(Part of the "Versatile: Find Out Fusion" series!)

Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Groove and Jug wail away in this classic set of tenor/organ tracks recorded for Pacific Jazz in the early 60s. The backing is spare, with only Gene Edwards on guitar and Leroy Henderson on drums, and tracks include "Morris The Minor", "Good Vibrations", "Hey You, What's That?", and "Groovin' With Jug".

Billy Wooten with Richard Groove HolmesPlace To Start ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $22.99
A lost chapter of genius from vibes player Billy Wooten – and a great one too! The set's a rare outing with Hammond giant Groove Holmes – laid out nicely here in a quartet setting that offers up plenty of Billy's great vibes mixed with the organ – in a mode that's very different than anything else Wooten ever recorded, and which really takes us back to the best soul jazz years of 60s Prestige Records! The group also features great tenor from Jimmy Coe – a player we don't really know at all – and drums from Jozell Carter, who works nicely with the rhythms from Holmes' work on the Hammond. Titles include "Blue Bossa", "Bags", "Groove's Blues", "It's A Groove Thing", and "I Remember April". CD

✨✧ Willis JacksonIn Chateauneuf-du-Pape 1980 (aka Ya Understand Me?) ... LP
Black & Blue (France), 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Back to basics work from Willis Jackson – a live date recorded in France at the start of the 80s, but one that's done with a soul jazz vibe that recalls his 60s concert sets for Prestige! The group here is a quartet, with Richard Groove Holmes on Hammond – and the tracks are long and open, with plenty of room for jamming, and the sort of tenor/organ interplay that Jackson used to hit with Jack McDuff. The album features two long groovers – "Ya Understand Me" and "More" – and hits a mellower tone on the cuts "Body & Soul", "My One & Only Love", and "The Head Tune". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has an index label with clear tape on the spine.)
