5.0 out of 5 stars Roland Kirk's atmospheric and electrifying Copenhagen concert., 18 Feb. 2012

This review is from: Kirk in Copenhagen (Audio CD)
This 1963 Copenhagen concert(with John Coltrane in the audience!) finds Roland Kirk and his group in explosive form. Kirk deploys his full armoury of instruments - tenor, manzello, stritch, flute, nose flute, siren, voice - to great effect, sometimes playing 3 simultaneously. Bluesman Sonny Boy Williamson(Rice Miller) makes a guest appearance playing harmonica on 'The Monkey Thing' adding to the excitement.
The late jazz critic, Charles Fox once described the original LP as "the closest thing I've heard on record as to how Roland Kirk sounds in the flesh" and this atmospheric and electrifying Club Montmartre recording certainly gives a good impression of what it was like to be at a Roland Kirk gig.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, the joy!, 18 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Kirk in Copenhagen (Audio CD)
This is so magnificent.
Kirk was a true giant; diving deep in the jazz traditions, reaching out to the low-down mouth organ of none other than Sonny Boy Williams, Kirk was still able to sit on the crest of the wave of modernism! Or avant-garde, as they often call it...
This is an excellent live jazz album, with the great Spaniard Tete Montoliu playing some hot boppish/mainstremish piano. If you like, for instance, CHarles Mingus, THIS is the album for you; if you like "avant-garde" jazz, hard-bop, free jazz - probably... You should get to know Roland (Rahsaan) Kirk! And this album is not a bad place to start.
