Rare Roland Kirk 1961

Wow, this is truly a rare treasure. A very young Roland Kirk, who had newly moved to New York and worked with Charles Mingus, appeared in Europe with the Parisian rhythm section of Rene Urteger, Pierre Michelot and American expatriate and bebop pioneer Kenny Clarke. Joachim Berendt emcees this 1961 Baden-Baden television broadcast. Although my German is nil, I can tell he is screwing up the descriptions of Roland’s antique saxophones by constantly mentioning ‘alto sax’ in the description of the manzello which is actually a Spanish variation of the soprano saxophone.

LAST NIGHT, LURCH DRUMMED FOR THE VELVET UNDERGROUND

GREATEST / STRANGEST DREAM EVER LAST NIGHT:
I was riding on a motorized bed that had been modded out with a steering wheel & big tires, traveling down a busy road in Detroit with two Velvet Underground members: a guitarist who looked nothing like Sterling Morrison & a drummer who was not Moe Tucker — it was Lurch from “The Addams Family.” Then Lurch had a heart attack & died, so I had to drive the bed to a funeral home.
I WAS NOT LOADED. PURE WHITE LIGHT / WHITE HEAT.
