The record opens with "Blue Rol," a standard blues made more beautiful by Kirk's playing three horns throughout except for his tenor solo and Smith's tough comping in the middle register. Alfie" is another story. Kirk blows his tenor with the same tonal warmth Ben Webster did by reading the melody faithfully and tenderly adding fills with Smith, slipping around him for subtle accents, adding color and dimension even when he picks up the tempo, which is led by a steaming, hard-swinging Tate.
Slippery, Hippery, Flippery incorporates a tape-collage technique that Kirk said was inspired by avant-garde composer Edgar Varese. The album's choices are governed by Kirk’s insatiable quest for freedom-it's no wonder that when Jimi Hendrix first traveled to London in 1966, the only record he carried was Rip, Rig, and Panic.
Kirk performing in 1972. Background information Davey Payne's twin saxophone solo on "Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick" (Ian Dury & the Blockheads, 1978) was inspired by Kirk. The Inflated Tear (1967). Left & Right (1968).
