USA, 1965, post-bop

Roland KirkI Talk With the Spirits

There are restless spirits in those flutes. As a folk and prog fan, I’m slain by woodwinds when they’re done well, and I can’t think of an album where they go better. There are moments in this album where I just turn to the speaker and say “yes…yes”. I feel this music through and through, like Kirk’s summoning my soul out of me to meet him up there somewhere. Almost enough to scare me.
