Jim Holton: No Green Bananas

“On his debut recording, pianist Jim Holton creates a contemporary sound that doesn’t pander. The set, produced by the session’s bassist, Mike Boone, is a suave swing through Holton’s original compositions in a variety of settings.

“Prayer for Healing,” written with bassist Tyrone Brown, is a Latin-tinged beauty, while the title track features some elegant blowing from tenor saxophonist Jon Thompson, trombonist Joe McDonough, and trumpeter John Swana.

The session(‘s) sophisticated sounds elicit pleasure.”
