Before Blacknuss, Rahsaan Roland Kirk was already exploring ways to fuse soul and R&B with jazz. Volunteered Slavery, with its beat/African chanted poetry and post-bop blues ethos was certainly a strike in the right direction. With a band that included Charles McGhee on trumpet, Dick Griffin on trombone, organist Mickey Tucker, bassist Vernon Martin, drummers Jimmy Hopps and Charles Grady, as well as Sony Brown, Kirk made it work.
