A standards-heavy date, 's Soul Denise - Richard Groove Holmes - Soul Mist! is one of Richard "Groove" Holmes ' most relaxed and swinging discs. Exploring the higher registers of the Hammond B3 instead of the familiar funky bass sound, Holmes ' playing actually resembles the electric organ version of Dave Brubeck 's familiar melodic piano sound, although the lightfooted cover of "Autumn Leaves" owes a lot to Bill Evans ' readings of the tune.
Side one in the original vinyl configuration; CD versions tend to scramble the track order is Holmes in his comfortable organ trio setting, with Gene Edwards ' guitar and Freddie Waits ' drums providing just the right accompaniment.
Side two's two extended tracks, "There Is No Greater Love" and "Things Ain't What They Used to Be," add trumpeter Blue Mitchell and tenor saxophonist Harold Vickwhose frisky sparring with Holmes ' alternately bluesy and sanctified organ riffs gives the album a fresher and more melodic spin. An often-overlooked gem in Richard "Groove" Holmes ' extensive catalog, Soul Mist is well worth seeking out.
