Rahsaan Roland KirkBright Moments ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Great double album live set with Roland leading a tight group through a long and varied set of material, all of which showcases the odd goofy sound of his music, and his offbeat approach to more familiar tracks. He talks a bit, makes the odd joke about being blind, and never ceases to amaze with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great 70s album by Roland Kirk – one that features him working on a lot of short tracks, in a pretty crazy style!

Rahsaan Roland KirkKirkatron ... LP
Warner, 1977. Sealed ... $13.99
Later genius from Rahsaan Roland Kirk – a record of wonderful depth and soul, and a session that moves back to the straighter jazz focus of some of his work from the Mercury years – yet still keeps all the personality and charm of the best Atlantic sides!

Rahsaan Roland Kirk takes on "other folks music" – that is, a host of tunes penned by other jazz artists – but as you'd expect, there's a really personal feel to the record overall – one that definitely makes the music Kirk's own by the end of the set!

A landmark album from Roland Kirk – one of his key 60s sides for Atlantic records, and an amazing blend of soul jazz, hardbop, and freer thinking styles!

Fairly free-blowing set of tracks by the young Klemmer, with lots of pyrotechnics on the reeds, and even a bit of playing on the "echo-plex", which is a cool electronic processing thingy that makes Klemmer's already-great reed style sound even more spacious!
