Does Your House Have Lions?

"One day in the late sixties, I was on the phone with Rahsaan and mentioned to him that just that day I bought a house.
He responded by asking, "Does your house have lions?"
I said, "What?"
He said, "Lions, you know like in front of a museum or the post office. You know, concrete lions. My house has lions. Get a house with lions."

More screenings of the documentary!

The world premier at SXSW was just the beginning of the "Rahsaanaisance", Joel Dorn's genius term for the Rahsaan-mania that is sure to ensue.

Here are some more screening dates for the film.  I would personally love to attend the Chicago screening. Who knows, maybe I'll make it there.

April 5 at Full Frame in Durham NC,
May 1-5 at CIMMfest in Chicago,
June 11th NYC premiere at IFC Center in conjunction with the Blue Note jazzfest,
End of July again in NYC

Rahsaan mentioned in Pete Townshend's new memoir

"Roland Kirk taught me that wen musicians pay respects they don't always do it with claps and hugs or fan letters.  Sometimes they merely listen.  If they happen to be blind, they listen with acuity."
