TOP 100 REVIEWERon 13 July 2016
This excellent CD by the extraordinary multi-instrumentalist Roland Kirk(1936-77) combines two albums from 1962 & 1963 originally recorded for MERCURY.
Tracks 1-10('Domino') were recorded in New York & Chicago during April & September, 1962 a few months after Kirk's exciting stint with Charles Mingus's band.
The collective personnel is Kirk(tenor sax, manzello, stritch, flute, nose flute, siren, whistle, voice); Herbie Hancock, Andrew Hill, Wynton Kelly(piano); Vernon Martin(bass); Henry Duncan, Roy Haynes(drums).
Tracks 11-18('Reeds & Deeds') were recorded in New York during February, 1963 with Kirk(tenor sax, stritch, manzello, flute, siren); Benny Golson(tenor sax); Virgil Jones(trumpet); Charles Greenlee, Tom McIntosh(trombone); Harold Mabern(piano); Richard Davis, Abdullah Rafik(bass); Walter Perkins(drums).
'Domino' is one of Kirk's finest albums while the little-known 'Reeds & Deeds' is hard to find elsewhere.
All in all, the 75 minutes of exhilarating and inventive music on this marvellous CD is an ideal introduction to the unique Roland Kirk.

A nice price for a package of 2 Kirk albums in 1 cd. Domino is an album that one is happy to have in his collection. Even if Reeds and Deeds is less interesting you can always consider it a "gift" coming along with a great piece of work like Domino.
