Musique Concrète by Various Artists, available now at!

Roland Kirk. Jazz multi-instrumentalist. Known for his exceptional circular breathing, use of musique concrete, and playing multiple instruments simultaneously. Here he is playing tenor saxophone and two obscure saxophones: the stritch (a straight alto sax lacking the instrument's characteristic upturned bell) and a manzello (a modified saxello soprano sax, with a larger, upturned bell).

Leif Podhajsky was commissioned by Foals to design the poster art for the band's forthcoming February UK arena tour.
