A brilliant overview of Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s’ output for Atlantic, featuring some of his best studio and live performances during his time with the label.
Probably the most inventive saxophonist in jazz history, Rahsaan Roland Kirk - blind from the age of two - could play several horns at once, and make his own instruments. By no means a novelty act, his technique was flawless.
This anthology covers Kirk’s time at Atlantic between 1965 and 1976, from Here Comes The Whistleman, to the seminal The Inflated Tear, Blacknuss and Volunteered Slavery, as well as his collaboration with Al Hibbler, the brilliant The Case Of The Three-Sided Dream and some material previously only available on Does Your House Have Lions.
Compiled with Jazzwise editor and writer Jon Newey, and with liner notes by Kevin Le Gendre.
