I never tire of listening to this album. Simply over-the-top funk, with great musicianship and style. This was my intro into Charlie Hunter's music, which is fantastic stuff. Even beyond the gimmick-appeal of Hunter's 8-string guitar (in which he holds down a bass line and hits the chords at the same time), you get masterful stuff. Listen to this album and groove to it. Then chew on this: NO OVERDUBS. That's right, folks: this stuff is organic.

"Kirk's Work" was recorded (not released) on June 11th, 1961. Throughout the album Roland Kirk, Jack McDuff, Joe Benjamin and Arthur Taylor are featured playing tunes based on the forms of blues and rhythm changes.
Every song has a good feel, a good groove, and the sound quality is very good throughout. Kirk plays his trademark instruments simultaneously, but not as a constant showcase; he merely uses the "multi-element" as an effect here and there on certain songs, which works better in this down-to-earth music than had the "multi-element" predominated.
The fresh sound of the Hammond organ fits in nicely and ties the album together. There aren't too many early 60's jazz recordings featuring Hammond - get this album for a great Hammond sound and feel.
Unfortunately, this edition of the album (OJCCD-459-2) is missing approximately the first second of track 1. The first second of track 2 begins at the end of track 1, the first second of track 3 begins at the end of track 2 etc. It's as if they'd pressed "play" before "rec."
There's also 1 minute and 40 seconds of silence at the end of the last track (making the album 34:40 long even though there are only 33 minutes of music.)
At the time of my writing this review, amazon.com wants $12.97 for this disc, but since it's not very long, and since the edition has the audio weaknesses mentioned above (and even though amazon provides reliable service,) I'd suggest for you to find another edition, because music this good should be presented a little bit better.

Format: Audio CD
J.K. Kirk does not stand for Captain T. James Kirk. That writen, the Enterprise's science officer could easily file this otherworldly adventure under cerebral, inventive, rockin', soulful, jazzy, funky and psychedelic. While these guys play the music of "T"helonious Monk, "J"ames Brown and Rahsaan Roland "Kirk," T.J. Kirk is no cover band. These luminaries take great music and reinvent it in a unique way. Three guitar players and a drummer may seem like stringed overkill, but these boys make it work in style. While Charlie Hunter, Will Bernard, John Schott and Scott Amendola have all gone onto lead successful careers, T.J. Kirk was greater than the sum total of its parts. Indeed, "T.J. Kirk" is better than 75% of Charlie Hunter's post T.J. Kirk career. Compared to its sequel, "If Four Was One," this debut may be less dynamic but it rocks harder. "T.J. Kirk" probably deserves five stars but the purpose of ratings is to sort products. While this is a great recording, the band's other two CDs are stronger. Listen to "T.J. Kirk" and discover the greatest guitar band that you've probably never heard about.

This is an absolutely, unbelievably, grotesquely underappreciated album. It ought to be a best seller. I totally indebted to the friend who gave it to me as a gift.
Four fine young musicians solve the chronic problem of weak original material by recording compositions at the interstice of jazz and R&B by Thelonious Monk, James Brown, and Rahsaan Roland Kirk (hence the name T.J. Kirk). The two guitars really mesh (Charlie Hunter is surreal) and they really get inside these compositions in a wonderful way (e.g. quoting JB in Monk's "Humph" and turning Kirk's "Volunteered Slavery" into reggae). Total funk workout.
One of the disks that I inevitably pack when heading off for desert islands. Give it to someone you love.

Format: Audio CD
Cut in 1961 this cd features the unique Roland Kirk backed by Brother Jack McDuff on Hammond organ, Joe Benjamin on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The material is fairly straight ahead music highlighted by the phenominal one man horn section, Roland Kirk. Playing tenor, manzello, strich (sometimes at once for the uninitiated), flute and even a whistle type siren he blows when as he puts it, "...I feel that the music has reached a certain pitch of excitement...". Kirk and McDuff both produce exciting performances, with McDuff's funky soul groove hammond complimenting Kirk's horns nicely. This is a solid session from one of jazz's under appreciated masters, and is worth a listen.
