The  American guitarist John L. Holmes published in 2010 The Holmes Stretch, his solo debut. Originally from Walla Walla, Washington, Holmes also produced South Of America in 2012, along with In Flight, a collaboration with saxophonist Ken Wilson. In the same way I record Ancient Currents with the Non Stop ensemble.


Born in Walla Walla, Washington, Holmes recorded in 2007 Listening for a Vision with the trio Myth America, along with percussionist Glenn Ayers.Born in Walla Walla, Washington.


Later the guitarist recorded The Holmes Strecht with his group Los Amigos. In 2012 I record South Of America with the group In Flight. With the same instrumentalists recorded a year later Tropical Reflections, this time with Non Stop, and which included the compositions of Friedman and Holmes.


Ancient Currents is the fourth recording by American guitarist John L. Holmes, his third with the Non Stop collective, a group born in the minds of the keyboardist Mike Friedman and Holmes himself.

Ancient Currents, an album recorded in Walla Walla, contains 11 issues, all unpublished and authored by John L. Holmes, with the exception of Holmesbrew, written by Mike Friedman. In this the blues is amalgamated with Latin music, the guitar gives it a mystical and tropical character. Silver Linings, a cha cha cha with a lot of cadence, is our featured number.Ancient Currents, an album recorded in Walla Walla, contains 11 issues, all unpublished and authored by John L.

La Vida Loquita is a perfect cha cha to start the recording. The solos of Dave Glenn (trombone) and Mike Agidius (saxophone) frame a perfect number. There Will Come A Day engages in conversation with funk. JL Holmes stands out in the guitar solo.
