FO/MO/DEEP picture
Best known for their sizzling live performances, the fo/mo/deep groove is rooted in the experimental school of the 70s…a time when jazz, soul and funk were one and the same. Seeking to defy the ordinary, this diverse collective of seasoned pros keeps things stirred up with unpredictable energy that moves. The music harkens back to the days when super groups hypnotized the world with bass driven ensembles and a full-bodied sound that reigned supreme. fo/mo/deep plays music like it’s meant to be…hot, incalculable and emotionally satisfying and fun for all ages.

“A Beautiful Bang” (June 2012) is the sophomore CD release for fo/mo/deep. Their first CD, “Eclecticism,” (August 2010) was received with rave reviews. Rob Young of The Urban Flux declared, “Their unique groove uncoils with a twist of eclectic jazz/funk rhythms that’s not heard often enough these days.” Known for their intelligently energetic and unpredictable shows, their live

Rob Young, @ The Vertical Spin …. “Like so many music enthusiast I eagerly anticipate the arrival of new and refreshing sounds, especially by jazz artists. Perhaps more than anything, I’m truly enlightened by the symmetry, lyricism and hidden elements revealed through the canvas of these recordings. With that said Columbus, OH native composer/bassist Ron “FatKat” Holmes returns with his band fo/mo/deep to enhance their distinctive mark on another riveting contemporary jazz offering titled “theGroovyGoodness.” From the outset, their enticing brand of jazz artfully envelopes a gumbo of mesmerizing flavors…..”

Chris Mann, @ smoothjazzdaily…”In the years that I’ve been writing about music, it’s always been a pleasure to hear the latest release from my favorite artists. It’s a real joy though to hear music this good from a band I just discovered. The writing, performing and producing talent on display here is really dazzling, but what I like most is the honest, funky nature of a band that knows where its roots lay, what it does well and what its audiences are going to love.”

Markus Michel @ Smooth Jazz Daily…. “Music in our times is often described with a certain kind of label like Jazz, Rock, Fusion etc.. But the musical concept of fo/mo/deep is different from that. They don’t seem to care for labels; they put different styles together, just as they like it. The result can -once again- be enjoyed on their new record The Groovy Goodness. The Groovy Goodness takes the listener on a journey into the groovy and funky sounds of the seventies and the eighties of the last century. Musical eclecticism is often used as a negative term, just to describe music, which contains nothing unique. But The Groovy Goodness shows, that ‘eclecticism’ can also be understood as ‘music without boundaries’.”
