Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

FO/MO/DEEP

Eclecticism

2010-11-15

I tried to find biographical information on this band and could only find the same quote (repeatedly) from band leader, Ron Holmes, Jr. about how great the band is. I can't even tell you the origin of the band name. Aside from Fo/Mo/Deep's self-professed awesomeness, I can tell you that the band is a sextet from Columbus. The release, "Eclecticism", isn't really eclectic at all. It's your basic smooth jazz, featuring mostly original pieces done in a professional manner. Covers include a version of Nate Adderley's "Hummin'" that is a bit slower than the original. The cover of John Coltrane's "Giant Steps" is....well...smooth. This is moderately upbeat easy listening jazz. Rebecca Ruth
