Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Part 1 of a short film featuring Rahsaan Roland Kirk that must be seen to be believed.

Kirk was also a master of circular breathing. This is a method in which you fill your cheeks with air and then push the air into the horn while simultaneously inhaling through your nose to refill your lungs. He used this method so there would be no breath breaks in his sound. You can see him do a little of it while he's playing the recorders.
