Analogue Productions (Impulse)
A 1962 set from the Roy Haynes Quartet – which, at the time, consisted of Haynes, Henry Grimes on bass, Tommy Flanagan on piano and Roland Kirk on saxes, manzello, stritch and flutes. The album is a delightful mix of technique in arrangement and performance, with all of the musicians delivering terrific work – Haynes´ drumming is absolutely wonderful here, lightly dancing around the other instruments. Flanagan´s piano playing is equally light and delicate, and Grimes´ bass work is outstanding. There´s not much that can be said about Kirk´s sax and flute work that hasn´t already been said a hundred times.
