Rahsaan Roland Kirk: Blindfold Test

Rahsaan Roland Kirk takes Leonard Feather's "Blindfold Test." Down Beat split it over two issues (July 25 & August 8, 1968) so there is plenty of room for Kirk's thoughts. As I prepared this post last month, Kirk's 1964 all-flute outing I Talk with the Spirits had a few spins and I followed that up with Domino last week. Along with The Inflated Tear and Charles Mingus' Oh Yeah, I Talk with the Spirits is some of my favorite Kirk. If you haven't checked out his playing, those three albums would make good starting places.
