I once read that the teaming up of Roland Kirk and Al Hibbler on this recording produced a "surreal album". In a way, that is true because Al Hibbler's vocal style will not be to everyones taste. He bends and distorts notes and words wonderfully. Kirks playing is glorious and the rhythm section swings like mad. Hank Jones, Ron Carter & Oliver Jackson know EXACTLY what to do.
The three instrumental tracks (6,7,8,)are superb. The only reason to give this 4 instead of 5 stars is the Leon Thomas track "Dream". This is not up to the standard of the rest of the album.
The rest of the album is 5 star and no mistake.

I've bought several Kirk albums recently many of which were new to me. I've admired his work since the 1960s. He really was an original (even if one left the simultaneous playing of the various instruments out of the assessment the variety and the orignality of his work is astonishing and very good to listen to).
I purchased this recording because I'd remembered it with affection. I'd not thought of it as a special album of Kirk's. But listening to it I think it shows an aspect of his achievement that is important. There is a joyousness here (as there often is with Kirk). Hibler's strange enunciations and unexpected dynamic placements make this a great vocal performance, a compelling performance. Kirk playing three horns for Duke's men is wonderful: Carney, Bigard, Hodges, Gonsalves, Webster are all powerfully there.

The piano bass drums are exemplary. I don't know of another record where he is supported quite like this. They play with the kind of authority that reminds me of the feel of Peterson supporting Webster and Hawkins. From this very tidy and highly energetic platform Roland generates passionate solos which are beautifully constructed. As a performer here he is in very orthodox jazz territory. And like every thing else he did he is a great master in this context. His recasting of Bigard and Carney overwhelms me. (I bet he knew that Carney was a great clarinetist) When he plays a la Bigard it is not just mimicry. He does what Eliot did in partially quoting from other poets. He makes it his own.

My original copy of the LP disappeared when the girls left for University thirty years ago along with some Hendrix and some Led Zepplin. I'm so glad that in Kirk they showed such discernment.

Al Hibbler was never the greatest of jazz singers, but with Roland Kirk's sumptuous and intelligent backing this CD makes for good listening. I don't, however, agree with the inclusion of Leon Thomas just to fill out some more time. He and Al Hibbler were of different generations. Even if jazz critics think Leon Thomas the better singer, which I can not disagree with, I find myself listening to Al Hibbler far more often than Leon Thomas - and I like Archie Shepp! The point I'm trying to make is that with music it is what you listen to most that counts, not what those who think they're in the know think you should listen to.

By WT Mitchell on 21 Aug. 2012

The blurb states that one title from the original album has been omitted because of "time restraints" and yet then goes on to include four unrelated tracks from a different artist (Ornette COLEMAN)
The total time on the disc is 75.59 mins,the missing track "something about believing" is timed at 6.04 mins.Which would indeed exceed the "time restraints" But then, The additional tracks by Coleman consume 43.42 minutes
The Coleman titles are all on an album titled "Dedication to Poets and Writers"on the magic music label and also appear within other Atlantic albums....
If anyone can explain the logic behind all this I would be pleased to hear it,I would also appreciate truthful explanations by record producers/manufacturers
