Out of the Afternoon is an album by jazz drummer Roy Haynes, released in 1962 on Impulse! Records.
AllMusic Review by Steven McDonald:
Out of the Afternoon is a splendid sounding 1962 set from the Roy Haynes Quartet – which, at the time, consisted of Haynes, Henry Grimes on bass, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Roland Kirk on saxes, manzello, stritch, and flutes. The album is a delightful mix of techniques in arrangement and performance, with all of the musicians delivering terrific work. Haynes’ drumming is absolutely wonderful here, lightly dancing around the other instruments; Flanagan’s piano playing is equally light and delicate; Grimes’ bass work is outstanding (during “Raoul” you have a chance to hear one of the few bowed bass solos on records of that era); and there’s no more to be said about Kirk’s sax and flute work that hasn’t been said a hundred times, apart from the fact that the flute solos on “Snap Crackle” help this cut emerge as particularly outstanding (https://goo.gl/okUJN9).
