Song Of The Day – 12/27/11






Song Of The Day – “Groove’s Groove” by Richard “Groove” Holmes

Like fellow Jazz organ giants Jimmy Smith, Brother Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff, Holmes released countless organ-drenched Soul Jazz sides during the 1960s paving the way for Acid Jazz and Hip-Hop. Here is the edited 7″ version of this song which was the flip side to one of Holmes’ biggest singles, “Misty.” It was originally from his 1965 album called “Soul Message.” After he died, The Beastie Boys’ released a tribute to the groovemeister called “Groove Holmes” from their album “Check Your Head.”
