Pianist Jaki Byard with Rahsaan Roland Kirk: "The Jaki Byard Experience"

Two great musicians here that were frequent musical partners on what was their last recorded appearance. It is also a fine way to celebrate the Birthday of pianist extraordinaire, Jaki Byard. Jaki would have been 93 today (June 15). Sadly he left us in 1999 the victim of a shooting. This great album also features the legendary Rahsaan Roland Kirk on a variety of horns, the tenor saxophone, the manzello (a straight alto saxophone), the clarinet and some small instruments. These two met when they were with Mingus in 1961 and formed a musical friendship. Two great surrealists of music. The album has Byard and Kirk backed by the great Richard Davis on bass and Alan Dawson on drums.The Jaki Byard Experience indeed! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. Byard.
