Many people focus on the fact that Rashaan Roland Kirk played many instruments and often all at the same time. Yeah, that IS pretty amazing, but the really amazing thing is that despite this tomfoolery the man could produce some of the most beautiful, haunting, soulful, funky, explosive music I have ever heard.
This is a great album - in so many ways, great music, great lineup (Elvin Jones on drums!) and two albums in one!. Usually it takes me time to get into something new, and I know that taking that time means that it will stay with me for a long time. Not so with Roland Kirk, I loved it straight off and I know I will keep hunting down the hard to find records for a long time to come.
Standout tracks include Mystical Dreams, the eponymous Rip Rig and Panic, Black Diamonds, Alfie (yes the Cilla Black number....) Silverisation and Now Please dont you cry Beautiful Edith. All different in their own way, but wonderful. Do yourself a favour and get into Rashaan's music and whenever someone asks you what your favourite Roland Kirk tune is just tell them - 'the one I'm listening to now', 'cos they are all knockouts.

Format: Audio CD
This marvellous CD combines two quartet albums by the multi-instrumentalis Rahsaan Roland Kirk(1936-1977).
'Rip, Rig and Panic'(tracks 1-7) was recorded in New Jersey on January 13, 1965 with Kirk(tenor saxophone, manzello, flute, oboe, stritch, castanets & siren) and a superb rhythm section of Jaki Byard(piano), Richard Davis(bass) & Elvin Jones(drums).
Kirk's idiosyncratic music is steeped in the jazz tradition and highlights of the seven tracks are the tribute to Lester Young 'No Tonic Pres', 'From Bechet, Byas and Fats' and the title-track(with breaking glass!).
'Now Please Don't You Cry, Beautiful Edith'(tracks 8-15) was recorded in New Jersey during April, 1967 with Kirk(tenor saxophone, flute, stritch & manzello), Lonnie Liston Smith(piano), Ronald Boykins(bass) & Grady Tate(drums).
While not on the same high level as 'R, R & P' this is an enjoyable and varied session that's been unjustly overlooked.
All in all, this 67-minute CD is an ideal introduction to Kirk's extraordinary musical talents.

The key to most of the music of the late Roland Kirk (1936-77) is joy. There's hardly a number he recorded that doesn't bespeak a great, huge-hearted joy of life, an uplift not always found so blatantly or so unashamedly in the world of jazz. Louis and Diz had it, Duke and Basie tended towards it, Sun Ra toyed with it, Fats Waller wallowed in it, but Kirk embodied it.
These two records from the mid-sixties contain some of his most vital work, Rip, Rig and Panic being a truly great jazz album, with the lesser known ...Edith not that far behind.
On Rip (from 1965) he's accompanied by a superb small band made up of the gregarious and versatile pianist Jaki Byard (try his own Sunshine of my Soul), bassist Richard Davis, with ever-adaptable Elvin Jones providing plenty of roughage on drums. It's a perfect line-up for Kirk's brand of mercurial 'Lord of Misrule' music-making.
On Edith (1967) he's with buoyant pianist Lonnie Liston Smith, Ronald Boykins (a name new to me) on bass, and Grady Tate excellent on drums.
As on Edith, Kirk can play a ballad as poignantly as anyone, without reverence but with respect for the composer's intentions. Hear what he does with Bacharach's Alfie (a brand new tune back then!), in particular the couple of false finishes he gives it, which somehow only add to its unexpectedly touching quality.
It was a good idea to pair these two short LPs on one CD, as they complement each other, despite differing line-ups, and it means you get two wonderful Kirk albums on one CD, which leaves everybody a winner.
The booklet contains the original notes plus a few photos, including one with his devoted wife Edith.

Worth buying if only to discover the origins of the title - which is explained (in very small type) on the cover.

The music itself is extraordinary. I've been listening for the last couple of days in more or less any odd moment. It's completely addictive - think of John Coltrane's My Favorite Things and then go beyond. This may be one of the best jazz albums ever made.
