An extraordinary opportunity to work on the musical essence of the American multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk, a leading figure in the jazz of the 60s and 70s, composer, bandleader considered the founder of modern jazz flute and known to the public for his performances where he could to use multiple wind instruments at the same time.
An exploration into the depths, in search of the blues, the multi-hematism and the musical greatness of an artist who has translated his intuitions into a music rich in spirit, strength, energy and rare beauty.
Not a project on the repertoire, but on the spirit of Roland Rahsaan Kirk, strongly desired by the three musicians.
