Opinião do álbum

Corny and gimmicky as hell but still a strange charmer in its own right is this "soundtrack" set of funky movie music and pop tunes from Richard "Groove" Holmes. Recorded in 1977, Holmes is accompanied by a studio orchestra hosting a six-piece brass section (which includes trumpeter Lew Soloff), a flutist, a rhythm section that features sundry percussion, and Mario E. Sprouse on Rhodes and piano. Beginning with a medley of themes from Star Wars and Close Encounters, the orchestra all but blazes over Holmes, but he does manage a sweet little solo and some hip fills. "Carry on My Wayward Son" (yeah, the Kansas tune) is simply surreal with its staggered French horns and trombones with flute and B3 interludes.

Whatever Groove Holmes was thinking when he made this should have made him think again. Strange, campy, bad in all the right places — this one is for collectors and novelty freaks only.

Holmes, a very accessible, straightforward and warm player who was especially popular in the black community, had been well respected on the Philadelphia/Southern New Jersey circuit by the time he signed with Pacific Jazz in the early '60s and started receiving national attention by recording with such...
