That's not so hard with me! Just can't get past the Clarke Original... I just like that whistle.

What a gas, Jim! That is most definitely a keeper!!! Strange, I actually felt as though I was being transported back in time... listening to "underground FM" radio out of Philadelphia. :shock: :mrgreen:

:lol: Sorry! Back around 1968 an FM radio station in Philadelphia started playing what back then they called "psychedelic" and progressive rock and roll exclusively. At the time it was the only station in the area that was playing Hendrix, the first Blood, Sweat and Tears album, Paul Butterfield, The Grateful Dead, etc. It was a "listening buffet", if you will, for rock and roll lovers and musicians (and many "aspiring" musicians like myself).

That was TOTALLY AWESOME, jrc!!!!!! Did you/do you play jazz? Do you play the Native American flute? Some parts sound like N. A. music, and I've heard that sound before in other songs you've done.

That was great. Free improvisation without the music becoming a blur of chaotic notes (one of my own sins). Your free jazz is maturing, in my opinion. This latest offering is slightly slower than some of your previous free jazz clips, and you have a better balance of repetition and the unexpected - both are essential in good jazz. I have about 100 jazz flute and whistle CDs in my collection and I have to say that this recording is as fine as any other track in my collection. I'd encourage you to experiment and record more and post the results here for our pleasure. :thumbsup:

I have said it before but I'll say it again - I have never heard a better player of the Clarke whistle, an instrument I find it impossible to play well. =D>

Thanks much guys - you all are so encouraging.

Lyn - I 'grew up' in big bands, playing tenor sax. Went to college as a sax major. Jazz/blues had always been where my heart was. I guess that 'flavor' lingers - I used to get in trouble in juries in college because of it. They would ask if I could 'not make it sound like jazz'. Couldn't do it, even if I tried.

Adrian - that's high praise brother - thanks again. And I do like that Clarke. It just works for me.

Jim, I finally listened to this, and have got to say, it's one fine piece of music. :thumbsup:
