Overview

The soulful American Pie pairs Groove Holmes with electric pianist Larry Willis, suggesting a more nuanced and restrained interpretation of the organ/electric piano formula that energizes Holmes' Blue Note classic Comin' on Home. Ably supported by guitarist Gerald Hubbard, bassist Jerry Jemmott and percussionist Kwasi Jayourba, Holmes and Willis weave a mellow, stoned-soul groove that twists and turns with lazy precision -- although the material derives from sources spanning from Don McLean to Anthony Newley to Holmes himself (the fine originals "Catherine" and "Fingers"), the mood and tenor of the set never wavers, but the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.
