Thanks for this. Have you watched the Jazz Icons DVD dedicated to Kirk? It's also quite a treat for those who appreciate this great artist.

Why is he tearing the chair apart? :|


1) Are we supposed to interpret this symbollical? (Black resistance against white oppression, velvet of chair as symbol of western domination?)
2) imitating Jimmi Hendrix, but to fond of his saxophones?
3) His 3 saxophones, cymbal and flutes don't offer enough means of expression
4) The chair was in the way, and poked in his knees during playing?

Any other hypothesis?

I saw another live performance were he does the same thing, breaking the chair in pieces. I found that hilarious at first sight, my interpretation was more vague like its representation of chaos. In the same video in the middle of a tune he shares some "magic" stuff with the audience!!!
