NO FRILLS, SHERLOCK:

The Holmes Brothers: Tiny Desk Concert (Bob Boilen, 8/02/10, NPR)

When The Holmes Brothers arrived to play a Tiny Desk Concert at the NPR Music offices, the group showed up early — really early, and ready to work. With Sherman Holmes on bass and Wendell Holmes on guitar, these folks are pros. They've been working at it for more than 30 years, playing soul music steeped in Baptist hymns, blues and spirituals. And they play it really well, without the frills.
