Recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland on 18 July 1975 (tracks 1, 7 & 12) and Regent Sound Studios, New York City, 1975 & 1976

Kirkatron is an album by jazz multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk featuring performances by Kirk recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1975 and studio sessions from 1975 and 1976.

Shortly after Rahsaan Roland Kirk finished his first album for Warner Brothers, he suffered a major stroke that put him out of action and greatly shortened his life. His second LP for the label was actually comprised of leftovers from the earlier session plus three songs taken from an appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival; the latter has been reissued on CD in a sampler but the other selections (which include “Serenade to a Cuckoo,” his cover of “This Masquerade,” “Sugar,” “The Christmas Song” and “Bright Moments”) remain out of print. This LP (which finds him mostly sticking to tenor), Kirk’s next-to-last album, has enough highlights to make it worth searching for. –AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
