iTunes Review

The core band of Domino is Herbie Hancock, Andrew Hill, and Roy Haynes: forward-thinking musicians who were just embarking on careers as composers and bandleaders. This group’s unceasing inventiveness fuels Kirk’s playing. His style is highly physical, and he benefits from the shapeshifting rhythms and chord voicings of “Domino,” “Meeting on Termini’s Corner,” and “Rolando.” For a pure display of Kirk’s horn playing, you can’t do better than “A Stritch in Time,” named for the customized saxophone that let him play with one hand (freeing him to play several other horns simultaneously). While the tunes are rooted in hard bop and the players hadn't yet begun to experiment in the way they would in later years, the flute ballad “Time” is a nice taste of something different; it gives a sense of Kirk’s talent for setting a mood. Of the bonus tracks, “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was” gives the best impression of Kirk’s meaty flute work, but “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “When the Sun Comes Out” highlight his unappreciated lyricism.
