Richard "Groove" Holmes - Star Wars - Close Encounters

Album

CD $12.99

Tracks

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 steals the show, but Holmes does manage a sweet little solo and some nice fills.
