Richard "Groove" Holmes Soul Message Limited Vinyl LP

A successful combination of swinging boogaloo rhythms and sincere, soulful soloing, Soul Message is an enduring good-time record and a true gem in organist Richard “Groove” Holmes’ illustrious career. Recorded in 1965 at the Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, this set more than lives up to “Groove’s” middle name as the combo of Holmes, guitarist Gene Edwards, and drummer Jimmie Smith swing with carefree ease through two originals and four jazz standbys, including a smash hit version of “Misty.” Jazz fans in search of some seriously swinging organ jazz need look no further than Soul Message – now available on vinyl.

Featured Tracks:
1. Grooves's Groove
2. Daahoud
3. Misty
4. Song for My Father
5. The Things We Did Last Summer
6. Soul Message
