You know, this is my blog and I'll blog about whatever I damn well please. And boy oh boy, do I please Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Erm... shit. Well, guess I can't go back, it's already in print so I'm just gonna go forward with it.
Anyway, Roland Kirk is an amazing blind, jazz musician. He's known for playing 3 saxophones at once, two flutes (one in the mouth and one in the nose(okay, minds out of the gutter)), along with a maelstrom of other quirky instruments. He mastered circular breathing (where he doesn't have to stop playing notes to breathe) and was once recorded to play continuously for 2.5 hours without a breath break. This is footage from the Monteaux Jazz Festival.

Rahsaan Roland Kirk - no idea what the song is (not the song title)
Haha, he's his own horn section!
