Boykins has been described as "the pivot around which much of Sun Ra's music revolved for 8 years" [1]. This is especially pronounced on the key recordings from 1965 (The Magic City, The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra, Volume One and The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra, Volume Two) where the intertwining lines of Boykins' bass and Ra's electronic keyboards provide the cohesion. Boykins also recorded with Rahsaan Roland Kirk on his famous Rip, Rig and Panic album. In 1979 he played with Steve Lacy and Dennis Charles on New York Capers and Quirks. He recorded one ESP-Disk album under his own name: The Will Come, Is Now in 1975.
