Live in Prague, 1967

Rahsaan Roland Kirk (1935 – 1977) was an American jazz multi-instrumentalist who played tenor saxophone, flute, and many other instruments. He was renowned for his onstage vitality, during which virtuoso improvisation was accompanied by comic banter, political ranting, and the ability to play several instruments simultaneously. He became blind at two years old, which he said was a result of improper medical treatment.
