Groove Holmes

American Pie
1972 US Black Label Original. Cut Out Hole (Made Before The Record Went Into The Sleeve). Small Corner Bump. Features Kwasi Jay Ourba, Bongos-Conga; Gerlad Hubbard, Guitar; Jerry Jemmott, Bass; Larry Willis, Electric Guitar. "The Soulful American Pie Pairs Groove Holmes With Electric Pianist Larry Willis, Suggesting A More Nuanced And Restrained Interpretation Of The Organ/electric Piano Formula That Energizes Holmes' Blue Note Classic Comin' On Home. Ably Supported By Guitarist Gerald Hubbard, Bassist Jerry Jemmott And Percussionist Kwasi Jayourba, Holmes And Willis Weave A Mellow, Stoned-soul Groove That Twists And Turns With Lazy Precision -- Although The Material Derives From Sources Spanning From Don Mclean To Anthony Newley To Holmes Himself (The Fine Originals "Catherine" And "Fingers"), The Mood And Tenor Of The Set Never Wavers, But The Whole Is Far Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts." AMG - Jason Ankeny.
