Happy Birthday Rahsaan

August 7, 2009 - reedman and composer Rahsaan Roland Kirk would have been 73 today. Here's a celebratory clip with Rahssan and his group of the time (1969), featuring (as near as I can tell) Ron Burton on piano, Jimmy Hopps on drums, and Vernon Martin on bass. That's Joe Habad Texidor on vocals and tambourine, also. Enjoy!


  1. No that's not Sonny Brown on tambourine (Sonny played drums, but Joe Habad Texidor.

    Thanks for the video.
