BJ:

Any chance you can share this spot with the rest of us?.... Maybe we
could air it on our respective stations and give this some additional
attention!  At the very least, I would love to hear this.... Never can
get enough of Joel's reminiscences of Rahsaan!

Aloha, and much love from SJ.

BS

Peeps,

There are plans this year for a scholarship to be given to a deserving
music student in the name of Rahsaan Roland Kirk, in his hometown of
Columbus, Ohio.  A local patron of the arts in that area has committed
money that will ear marked each year to commemorate the brilliant
miracle worker that was Rahsaan Roland Kirk.  

I pulled together a twelve minute profile of Kirk last August that
commemorates Kirk and talks about this honor.  The voices in the package
include the legendary Joel Dorn, Columbus, OH reporter Jack Marchbanks,
Kirk's widow Dorthaan and none other than Rahsaan himself.  

We will air it again in early August and do a follow up report with the
first recipient and others that are involved in the RR Kirk Scholarship
fund.  

Aloha,

Bobby Jackson

There are many fine flugelists or is flugelhornists? flugelhorn players?
anyhooo, I always enjoy hearing the under rated multi-instrumentalist
Ira Sullivan blow his flugel. It never ceases to amaze me how easily he
changes from a reed to a horn or the reverse in a single song while
maintaining proficiency on both insturments that require different
emboucheres, fingering and mindset. Ira recorded with Roland Kirk in the
beginning of Kirk's career, today I was reading the liners of a new
2-disc release by LoneHill Jazz(what a fine re-issue label), Roland Kirk
Quartet with Tete Montoliu, Copenhagen concert-1963 & Newport Jazz '64,
and I was smiling at the many quotes attributed to Roland and later on
as Rahsaan, 2 in particular hit home, "The Creator has blessed me with
the ability to play, 2 or 3 lines simultaneously and to play non-stop,
but everything I've been able to get together has usually been
considered a gimmick or a trick, this bugs me. People have found it easy
to dismiss the miracle which is my contribution to the saxophone instead
of trying to deal with what's really involved in it". The other one as
Rahsaan is toooooo funnieeeee, "When I die I want them to play The Black
and Crazy Blues, I want to be cremated, put in a bag of pot and I want
beautiful people to smoke me and hope they get something out of it"
Well, I have sure have gotten a lot of inspiration from Kirk the man,
overcoming all obstacles to reach his goals and not letting any physical
handicap be an excuse. His life story should be required reading in high
schools across the land.
