The Charles Mingus set ends with Kirk blowing tenor sax on Mingus's "Ecclusiastics," and this set begins with "Wham Bam Thank You M'am" from the same '61 session. Kirk's inconsistent but gem-filled career is better suited for the confines of a 2 CD set than Coltrane's or Mingus's, and this collection makes it clear that Kirk was much more than an oddity who often played two or three reed instruments simultaneously. A saxophone iconoclast who emerged at the same time as Coltrane and Coleman, Kirk was far more willing to incorporate the playful humor of Armstrong and Gillespie, and the gospel/blues of Mingus, into the free-jazz revolution than either of his peers. This set includes 25 tracks from his 1967-'76 years on Atlantic, an unreleased live version of "Three for the Festival," and snippets of witty chatter. --Geoffrey Himes

"Say A Little Prayer" meets "A Love Supreme" 7 Dec. 2003
By m_noland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As Stanley Crouch observes in his liner notes to this excellent two-disk set, Rahsaan Roland Kirk occupied an uncomfortable place in the saxophone pantheon clearly a notch below Coltrane and Rollins but clearly above professional journeyman. What set him apart (other than his absence of sight and his ability to play multiple reed instruments simultaneously) was his extraordinary capacity for synthesizing diverse musical styles, as amply documented in this excellent career overview.
Kirk ranged from the straight-ahead bop of "Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am" from a 1961 session with Mingus, to the eerie atmospherics of "The Inflated Tear" and "Seasons," to R&B "Volunteered Slavery" and "The Old Rugged Cross" (the word play of the spoken introduction to the latter is worth the price of admission alone - I would have loved to hear what Rahsaan would have made of rap) to pop "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Say A Little Prayer" (in which he quotes the "Acknowledgement" movement from "A Love Supreme") to observations on racial and sexual relations. A cranky sort of humane-ness comes through throughout.
If Coltrane was a seeker and Rollins a virtuoso, Rahsaan Roland Kirk was your eccentric neighbor sitting on his porch dealing out street wisdom. A worthy introduction to the career of a sadly missed musician.

It is a great Best-Of... but being a Best-Of is the problem 3 Jan. 2000
By macfawlty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great best-of for rahsaan, to be sure, and if you don't have alot of his music already, I would recommend it highly, but being a best-of means that the songs are taken out of the context of the albums they were recorded for, and it always leaves me with a feeling like... "hey, this is great..., but what about the music I am missing?". With Rahsaan, you don't want to be missing anything. My preference for Rahsaan is actually for box sets that are entire albums like Aces Back to Back, or Dog Years in the Fourth Ring, etc. Don't avoid buying this box if you just want a little, but get hip to rahsaan and accept the fact that you can't eat just one.

The Critique of Instrumental Reason 1 Jan. 2004
By Jeffrey Rubard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There isn't too much to say about this record, except what it less-than-obviously is not (namely, a message to future generations of all ages). As Joel Dorn's for-once-respectful liner notes make clear, Kirk was a public figure in an age of public figures and perhaps one of the last of them: his famed three-horn method (a sight to see) derives from vaudeville, rather than the military brass bands of Albert Ayler's "dreams". And the absolute modernism of the "chitlin circuit" compared to various modalities of bop is something to consider, as is the very sad story about Kirk and the fusion group Stuff (who knew how to play "King Heroin", but not "A Night In Tunisia") and the extremely instructive stories about Kirk's sense of humor in the face of incredible (insuperable) obstacles. A figure richly deserving a sentimental and melancholy book, music that demands a listenership.

unsung genius 11 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
it would be difficult to define the music that occupies this superb set. there is a tremendous range of influences from blues, traditional jazz, and folk to neo-classical, world music and avante-garde stylings, all bearing the sublime fingerprints of rahsaan. this is music that goes straight for the gut and hits its mark with perfect precision.

a great introductory collection but not cohesive enough. 4 July 2000
By Ravi Desai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This 2CD anthology from Rhino is a great introduction to Rahsaan Roland Kirk. The set has selections from Kirk's recordings with the Atlantic label, from his early days with Charles Mingus to his solo work. As with the other sets in Rhino's Atlantic Jazz Gallery series the production for the set is excellent. The sound is great and the 40 page booklet makes interesting reading The only reason this does not get5 stars is that the selection of tracks is not very cohesive and does not give the listener a consistent feel for Kirk. A more comprehensive set such a the Complete Mercury Recordings is ideal ,however this is much more affordable and makes a great introduction to Kirk. Be warned you will find yourself buying more of Kirk after listening to this.
