Rick Holmstrom
Hydraulic Groove (Tone Cool/Artemis)

By: Alex Steininger

Guitar virtuoso Rick Holmstrom's Hydraulic Groove is an instant winner, the opening track "These Roads", making the toughest of critics smile with its danceable beat, warm melody, and blues-gone-soul grooves. The rest of the album follows "These Roads" lead. Fuse blues jams, plenty of soul, Holmstrom's defining guitar sound, and a lot of organ and you have created a top-notch, sizzling groove record, the type that will make you dance one moment and find you sitting down to absorb the immense soul of the sounds the next. This is therapeutic sound testifying that music is medicine. I'll give it an A.
