      If I remember right, It was Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Post stroke, playing with one hand!

      Super picture of one of the great temples of Jazz...

      The date you posted is right around the time (1976) of Dexter Gordon's "Homecoming" Live at the Village Vanguard (engineered by the great Malcolm Addey)

      The acclaim that met Dexter Gordon when he returned to the United States after 14 years in Europe was completely unexpected. Not only did the jazz critics praise the great tenor but there were literally lines of young fans waiting to see his performances.

      Dexter brought in a quintet with trumpeter Woody Shaw, pianist Ronnie Mathews, bassist Stafford James and drummer Louis Hayes
