Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Ain’t No Sunshine

I saw Roland Kirk at The Hovel in Edmonton in the late ’70s. I was a big fan of Jethro Tull back then and wanted to hear Ian Anderson’s biggest inspiration. Loved every minute of it. The place reeked of pot and tobacco smoke, patchouli and sweat. And Kirk got the groove going early and never let up till the last passionate note.
