Album Review

Out of the Afternoon is a splendid sounding 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 techniques 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; Grimes' bass work is outstanding (during "Raoul" you have a chance to hear one of the few bowed bass solos on records of that era); and there's no more to be said about Kirk's sax and flute work that hasn't been said a hundred times, apart from the fact that the flute solos on "Snap Crackle" help this cut emerge as particularly outstanding.

Customer Reviews

Rip, Rig and Chill

Guided by memory: An old record that vanished in the CD collection... smoked to find it on iTunes, even if the sound is more lo-fi than what these brilliant MFs made in 1962, a superb album.

Not just out of the afternoon--out of this world!!!

Roy Haynes put together an amazing group on this little-known gem: Roland Kirk (famous for playing multiple reed instruments simultaneously and for inventing his own instruments like the "stritch" and the "manzello"), Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Henry Grimes on bass. Adventurous music but by no means inaccessible. Simply put, this music is out of this world!

A Classic!

Roy Haynes has always been one of my favorite drummers. He plays with, on top, behind, and all around the beat. Amazingly, he's still going strong today when he is well into his 80s. Every single cut on this cd is superb and it is probably one of Roland Kirk's best outings on a recording. A must for anyone's jazz collection.
