Rahsaan Roland Kirk – the black master of black classical music !

Please watch the two videos below for getting an idea what this musician was about.

From the ‘Down Beat’ 1975 poll-winners’ show, a performance of Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s ‘Pedal Up’.

Rahsaan Roland Kirk – horns
McCoy Tyner – piano
Stanley Clarke – bass
Lenny White – drums

The performance is introduced by Quincy Jones.

To the best of my knowledge, this performance is not commercially-available.
