Rahsaan Roland Kirk - Prepare Thyself to Deal with a Miracle (1973)Alice Coltrane - Universal Consciousnesses (1971 / 3.82)
Key Tracks: Seasons | Saxophone Concerto
An album filled brimming with personality, virtuosic reed work, and a sound that's spiritual, yet also deeply individual. Rahsaan does it all - flute, mystery pipes, E flat sax, and clarinet. The two greatest moments are its two longest, “Seasons” and “Saxophone Concerto,” each of which displays a breadth and versatility that many artists wouldn’t attempt in an entire album, let alone a sole composition. It’s miraculous.
