Roland Kirk (he did not add the name “Rahsaan” until the very late Sixties, after these recordings were made) could very accurately be described as a blind man capable of playing three reed instruments (some of them quite odd) at once. Nevertheless, he was able to avoid being categorized as strictly a gimmick player—which is a great tribute to his brilliant and multi-faceted improvisatory talents.

*#1-7 originally released as Kirk’s Work (Prestige 7210).
