Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[1]

The Allmusic review by Lindsay Planer states "The expanding musical universe of Rahsaan Roland Kirk continues its orbit on Domino. While always true to his exceptional talents, Kirk's previous efforts are somewhat derivative when compared to his later and more aggressive sound. On Domino, the genesis of his more assertive presence is thoroughly evident."[2]
