A "Local Hero" now but won't stay unrecognized long. Jim Holman Mid-20's from Chicago with imagination and chops for days. 2 CDs so far and the strength of his sidemen grows with each release. A newspaper article: http://www.examiner.com/article/pian...e-show-tonight His Site: http://jimholman.com/ Got 2 listings on AMG, one is inexplicably listed under "Pop/Rock". I keyed on Ron Weinstock's blog: http://inabluemood.blogspot.com/2012...explosion.html << his 2 partners on this recording are exemplary jazzmen.
