    Favorite flute

    In jazz or prog.

    I'm sure Jethro Tull, Genesis, maybe even Traffic might come to mind. I also like Paul Horn, Deuter, Herbie Mann, Eric Dolphy, etc. Who do you like?

    Hubert Laws is probably the ultimate, followed by Herbie Mann.

    In the world of prog, Thijs van Leer must be mentioned, as well as a more obscure choice, Peter Weekers of Flairck (who also blows a mean pan pipe).

    Also, whoever does the flute solo on this. No idea if it’s Klaus Nagel or Gerd Köthe, but it’s always amazed me:

    Pearl Elegante Coda--ha. Okay. Wished I'd learned a wind instrument in high school. Though I have my dad's French horn and trumpet.

    Brass instruments are HARD. I fooled around with a cornet for a while, but it was painful. The one time I tried a French horn, I couldn't even get a note out of it.

    I remember John Entwistle talking in an interview about playing the French horn, commenting on how part of the problem is the size of the mouthpiece.

    Shame on me for failing to mention Kenji Imai, one of my favorite contemporary practitioners of the instrument:



    Shem-Tov Levy is another obscure choice I feel compelled to mention.

    Wow Density 21.5... I guess 21.5 or 21.45 per cubic centimetres is the density of platinum (heavy)

    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.
