Reissue, originally released in 1961. Roland Kirk was one of the most creative, extravagant figures in jazz history. A master multi-instrumentalist with no boundaries in terms of language, style, and technique.
Here, you find him co-leading a strong studio session with organ specialist, Jack McDuff. Backed up by Joe Benjamin on bass and Art Taylor on drums, Kirk and McDuff give voice to a soulful post-bop set full of groovy riffs and highly inventive instrumental ping pong. Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder and released in 1961 by Prestige Records, this is a fine early step in Kirk's varied and intense career.
