Groove Holmes: Comin on Home

This is a fav of mine going back many years to a bizarre period on Blue Note where there were some less than popular jazz lps however with this lp Blue Note chose a rare star appearance by Groove Holmes at the time. It was Groovin for Mr G that blew my head at the time and I have never quit loving that fat sound the track gives
