Profile of the performer Roland Kirk: Born August 7, 1935 in Columbus, Ohio.

Died December 5, 1977 of a stroke in Bloomington, Indiana.



He was best known for being a blind jazz saxophonist who could play more than one wind instrument at once. Kirk played a number of musical instruments, mainly various saxophones, clarinets and flutes. His main instruments were tenor saxophone and two obscure saxophones: the stritch and the manzello. Kirk modified these instruments himself to accommodate his simultaneous playing technique. The idea of playing more than one saxophone at the same time occurred to him in a dream and he set out to make it a reality. Around 1970 he added Rahsaan due to a dream. He is also noted for his circular breathing technic and was reportedly able to sustain a note for over an hour.
