Excellent early work from Roland Kirk. He plays alto, tenor, and soprano - and on all tracks, he plays them in his unique "3-in-1" style, in which he's actually blowing all horns at the same time! The result is an incredible sound, unlike anyone else we can think of - and it's an amazingly raw tone that still swings very hard. Players include Jimmy Madison on piano, Carl Pruitt on bass, and Hank Duncan on drums - a really rootsy quartet that helps Roland hit a really gutbuckety sound on the record. Titles include "Triple Threat," "Slow Groove," "Roland's Theme," "Easy Living," "The Nearness of You," and "A La Carte."
