Two radio sessions recorded during Tubby Hayes' 1972 visits to Sweden, featuring a mix of standards and original material, including newly discovered versions of his classic compositions "Off the Wagon" and "Trenton Place".

Packaged with rare photographs and an extensive booklet note by saxophonist Simon Spillett, the album has been taken from professionally recorded live tapes and is released in co-operation with Swedish Radio.

"Of the recent Tubby releases, this one is among the best musically and sonically," says Spillett. "It gives us an up-close opportunity to hear how he worked away from his regular line-ups, as well as showcasing some of his finest flute work, something previous albums haven't focused on too much."

Press Quotes

"(4.5 stars) Hayes' playing shows a gratifying combination of strength, swing and sensitivity...Over 40 years later there's still plenty of interest in the work of this great British musician - and albums like Split Kick do a terrific job in reminding us of his talent."

All About Jazz, (Bruce Lindsay), August 14, 2016

"The concerts, documented by Sveriges Radio, sound as if they were recorded recently. Like the other releases from the archive they burnish the memory of the great musician."

Jazz Views, (Jack Kenny), September 2016
