Rahsaan Roland Kirk presents three astounding concerts by this musical superhero playing his entire instrumental arsenal of saxophone, flute, mazello, stritch, siren and whistles – often simultaneously!

Kirk is backed by extraordinary side-musicians including legendary bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, drummers Alex Riel and Daniel Humair, and long-time pianist Ron Burton who keep the fire and swing burning throughout Rahsaan’s blazing workouts.

This collection also includes two different renditions of “Three For The Festival”, arguably Kirk’s most spectacular performance piece, showcasing him as a thunderous acrobatic player whose multiple horn work was all jazz and no gimmick.

“The release of JAZZ ICONS is like the unearthing of a musical time capsule – an audio-visual treasure trove of the music that changed the world. From an educational standpoint this series is a gift to our culture.” --Quincy Jones
