Welcome Rain Publishers, New York, 2000, Stated First Edition. This is the first biography of the extraordinary multi-instrumentalist , an appropriately colourful account which makes good use of three years of in-depth interviews with Rahsaan’s family and fellow musicians; all the antics aside, Kruth argues strongly for Kirk’s place in the jazz pantheon, arguing that his sometimes outrageous personality and amazing ability to perform on three instruments simultaneously, often obscured his originality and genuine virtuosity, which lead to the wrong-headed charge that he was merely “a circus act”. About fine in purple quarter cloth over yellow boards, in a like dust jacket, unclipped, in mylar sleeve. J1978
