Rahsaan Roland Kirk - The Call

Rahsaan Roland Kirk used to refer to his two horn feats as "splitting the mind into two parts." This transcription is a 1960 two horn (manzello and tenor saxophone) self-duet that [Rahsaan] Roland Kirk played 1:05 from the beginning of The Call. It's from his [second] debut album, Introducing Roland Kirk. (Here's the mp3 of the excerpt.)

Dear Steve,

I found your admirable blog by way of Ian Bradley's MIDRIFF -- and have added it to my blogroll. Although our tastes don't entirely overlap, perhaps you'd enjoy some of the live New York jazz videos I've put on mine, JAZZ LIVES (

Cheers and thanks,
Michael Steinman
