Renowned for his high energy live performances, a
technical virtuosity which allowed him to play multiple
instruments simultaneously, and deeply held
convictions for political and social justice, Rahsaan
Roland Kirk was a highly eccentric figure in the jazz
genre, but also an incredibly influential one. Maintaining
an illustrious career stretching from 1955 to his passing
in 1977, Kirk had performed and collaborated with the
likes of Quincy Jones & Charles Mingus, and brought
new and exciting techniques and styles to jazz,
pioneering the usage of circular breathing, and utilizing
unorthodox musique concrete instrumentation in his
pieces, including broadcast footage, sirens, alarm
clocks, and other non-musical devices.
1973's Prepare Thyself To Deal With A Miracle is a
prime example of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's genius. His
9th album with Atlantic Records featured a powerhouse
group of session musicians, including Dick Griffin
on Trombone, Ron Burton on Piano, and Ralph
MacDonald on percussion, while Kirk himself works
overtime, providing alto and tenor saxophone, clarinet,
flute, nose flute, and what he referred to as
"black mystery pipes." (A length of garden hose.)
Prepare Thyself featured multiple jazz concertos
running a gamut of genres, ranging from free jazz to
avant-garde to hard bop, while creating layers upon
layers of aural architecture, and droning, sonic pillars of
sound. An unheralded masterpiece of jazz exploration
and frantic, chromatic expression.
