American jazz musician, who, although blind, could play three or more instruments at the same time. Kirk's performances included great and soulful jazz and blues as well as political humor and some rantings.

Kirk went blind at a young age, the result of poor medical treatment.

He suffered a stroke in 1975 and died in Bloomington, Indiana from a second stroke on December 5, 1977, age 42.
