Congas – Richard Landrum

Although this is dependable B-3 Hammond soul-jazz, some of the songs selected for this set, such as "If I Had a Hammer" and "Never on Sunday," are inappropriate for soul-jazz translation. On the other hand, the adaptation of Luiz Bonfá's "Manha de Carnaval" is good, and Nat Adderley's "Work Song" is a classic that's hard to mess up. Only one Holmes' original, "Boo-D-Doo," on a session aided by guitarists Gene Edwards and Boogaloo Joe Jones.
