Nick Holmes first played with the musicians on Soulful Crooner while singing with White Elephant, the seventies jazz rock big band. This record was the solo record for Nick that followed that White Elephant double record collaboration. It still sounds good today, although in those days we didn't have digital yet. Mike Mainieri's production and arrangements are full honest from that period. It's a jazz record in many ways. Many of the songs have more key changes in the intros of the songs than Nick used on entire albums in the '80s and 90s. Nick learned his harmonic sense from these years with the jazzers, and his voice is in fine shape.
