 ....wanted to let you know that the new Jim Holman is a KILLER! Have it programmed to play while I'm gone. Best regards.

In a Blue Mood
Explosion! is a solid debut for Jim Holman and suggests he is a voice we will be hearing more from

Jazz and Blues
Jim Holman is an excellent up and coming piano player with a fine touch on the instrument and an impeccable knack of picking great songs to cover
 
 All About Jazz,

This freshman effort from a tremendous talent is not only a delightful listening experience it is also, hopefully, a portent of greater things to come from this interesting new voice in jazz.
 
 
John Barron, The Jazz Word
 In-the-pocket comping and blistering single-note lines stand out on this ten-track disc of familiar jazz standards and originals.
