The Write Time
A fine young tenorist/composer from the Washington, D.C. area, Holmes offers an appealing variety of instrumental combinations from trio to octet. His mainstream modern program includes Yusef Lateef's bebop head "Water Pistol," Joe Henderson's "Serenity," and a number of standards and imaginative originals. Among the veteran performers who add to the occasion are trumpeter John D'earth and baritonist Glenn Wilson. Sophisticated writing and compelling solos.
