    I can see "progressive bluegrass" as a genre. Stuff like Chris Thile and Punch Brothers play, and also folks like Bela Fleck, Rickey Skaggs, etc. But players that do "bluegrass" don't necessarily refer to themselves as "country", if you know what I mean.

    I guess they mean bluegrass (though that clearly "folk" to my ears) and some other sorts of "Appalachian folk" musics and the virtuosity that can come out of them.
    Some tracks in the early Charlie Daniels and Marshall Tucker bands have epic or prog facets.

    One favorite who hasn't been mentioned yet is James Spaulding. He hasn't done much as a leader, but he's played flute (and alto sax) on a ton of fantastic records by Pharoah Sanders, Bobby Hutcherson, Sam Rivers, and others.

    Ooh! Great thread!! Thank you!

    I was playing my large, Native American bass flute (F#) for my mother in law as she faces the last few days of her life. It was...moving.

    I was just listening to Kenso II for, like, the ten-thousandth time, and I was taken by just how delightful Shiro Yajima’s flute playing on the album is. Coupled with Yoshi’s divine guitar and ALL ANALOG synths, it is prog heaven. Is it any wonder this is my favorite Kenso album, and among my favorite Japanese albums of all time:

    I suppose it is a hard job to get those low notes.

    as usual with these kind of threads, they turn from state "your fave flute moments" to list "any flute moments you can remember"


    Sooooo, I'll go for :

    On this day in 1791, The opera The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart premiered in Vienna.

    Unsung hero of many a classic 1960s Blue Note session! As you say, ever the sideman. Great pick.

    No, it's not bluegrass, it has nothing to do with "virtuoso" music of any kind. I guess it's actually related to so called "outlaw country", like Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. I guess. (shrug)

    I remember first seeing the phrase "progressive country", oh I don't know how many years ago, probably something like 15 years ago, when our cable TV service had a "radio" channel devoted to the genre (they had a bunch of channels that just played music, no videos, they rotated every so often, but you'd have several rock stations, a jazz station or two, a new age/ambient station, a classical station, etc). Anyway, at one point they had a progressive country station, and like I said, to me it just sounded the same old stuff you heard "today's country" radio. So I looked it up on Wikipedia, and I forget the description, but I remember there being a specific note that the word "progressive" wasn't being used in the same way it is in "progressive rock" or whatever.

    Reading the Wiki page now, that note seems to have been removed, but it seems we're talking about singer/songwriter oriented stuff, people like Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, so I guess it's related to the so called "outlaw" thing, which was aimed at breaking away from "the way they do things in Nashville".
