Rahsaan Roland Kirk

RAHSAANATHON AT CAFÉ STRITCH
AUGUST 4-9

Veteran jazz fans will remember Rahsaan Roland Kirk, the jazz genius who died in 1977. One of his hobbies was inventing new instruments, and one of them—a stritch—is hanging above the bandstand at Café Stritch (the club is named for the instrument).

The club owner, Steve Borkenhagen, is a huge Kirk fan and the club puts on an annual “Rahsaanathon”, a 4-5 day tribute to Kirk’s music.  This year there will be a special attraction. Steve writes:

“The stritch lives—we are completely rehabilitating Rahsaan’s stritch and both James Carter and Charles McNeal are going to play it at our RAHSAANATHON this year! The stritch has not been played since Rahsaan’s death in 1977.” This is historic, folks!

The schedule: August 4 and 5—Claire Daly and John Kruth, with Sonelius Smith; August 6, 7, 8—Steve Turre, with James Carter; August 9—James Carter and friends.  All shows start at 8:30pm.

Café Stritch is at 374 S. First St. in San Jose.  Phone 408/280-6161. Tickets available online: www.cafestritch.com.
