Natalie's Wood will perform Roland Kirk's 1968 release, "The Inflated Tear" in its entirety.
The Inflated Tear is an album by Roland Kirk released in 1968. One of his most popular albums and sometimes regarded as his magnum opus, it established his reputation as a composer and earned him a modicum of respect in music circles who had previously written him off as a sideshow.
"The debut recording by Roland Kirk on Atlantic Records is not the blowing fest one might expect upon hearing it for the first time. Kirk decided to take his quartet of pianist Rahn Burton, bassist Steve Novosel, and drummer Jimmy Hopps and lead them through a deeply introspective, slightly melancholy program based in the blues and in the groove traditions of the mid-'60s. Kirk himself used the flutes, the strich, the Manzello, whistle, clarinet, saxophones, and more -- the very instruments that had created his individual sound. This is Roland Kirk at his most poised and visionary; his reading of jazz harmony and fickle sonances are nearly without peer. And only Mingus understood Ellington in the way Kirk did. If you are looking for a place to start with Kirk, this is it." - Thom Jurek
