The debut recording by Roland Kirk this was still pre- Rahsaan on Atlantic Records, the same label that gave us Blacknuss and Volunteered Slavery, is not the blowing fest one might expect upon hearing it for the first time.
In fact, producer Joel Dorn and label boss Neshui Ertegun weren't prepared for it either. In November Kirk decided to take his quartet of pianist Ron Burtonbassist Steve Novoseland drummer Jimmy Hopps and lead them through a deeply introspective, slightly melancholy program based in the blues and in the groove traditions of the mid-'60s.
Kirk himself used the flutes, the strich, the Manzello, whistle, clarinet, saxophones, and more -- the very instruments that had created his individual sound, especially when some of them were played together, and the very things that jazz critics some of whom later grew to love him castigated him for. Well, after hearing the restrained and elegantly layered "Black and Crazy Blues," the stunning rendered "Creole Love Call," the knife-deep soul in "The Inflated Tear," and the twisting in the wind lyricism of "Fly by Night," they were convinced -- and rightfully so.
Roland Kirk won over the masses with this one too, selling The Creole Love Call - Roland Kirk - The Inflated Tear 10, copies in the first year.
The Creole Love Call - Roland Kirk - The Inflated Tear is Roland Kirk at his most poised and visionary; his reading of jazz harmony and fickle sonances are nearly without peer. And only Mingus understood Ellington in the way Kirk did. That evidence is here also. If you are looking for a Annie May - Bligg - Bart Aber Herzlich to start with Kirkthis is it.
