Reeds & Deeds play a tribute to the great Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Rahsaan Roland Kirk (August 7, 1935 - December 5, 1977) was an American jazz multi-instrumentalist who played tenor saxophone, flute and many other instruments. He was renowned for his onstage vitality, during which virtuoso improvisation was accompanied by comic banter, political ranting, and the ability to play several instruments simultaneously. He became blind at an early age as a result of poor medical treatment. In 1970, Kirk added "Rahsaan" to his name after hearing it in a dream. Rahsaan's work reveals a timelessness and yearning for freedom and exploration. Like the AACM, Jimi Hendrix, Charles Mingus and Archie Shepp, Rahsaan had a way of capturing the spirit of the times without feeling dated. There's a melding of tradition with eclecticism and iconoclastic irreverence that informs both Rahsaan's compositions and the Dutch mindset.Museumnight at SMAK Museum (free entrance)
