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.
"Sonically, one is hard pressed to find a better sounding, studio jazz recording than Out on the Afternoon... Place Out on the Afternoon atop your must-have LP order list! No, upon further reflection, just order it!" - Myles B. Astor, Positive-Feedback.com, Issue 49
