Product Notes

First there is the flute. Then there is jazz. And then there is jazz flute. There's no "one way" of doing jazz flute and to some extent the flute must transcend the preciousness of it's long history in favor of the wilder and woolier side. Listen to Mah Jong (the first track) which, I think, will illustrate this point. There are two contexts on Heavy Flute: the minimal setting of the trio with bass and drums and the more traditional quartet. We recorded all of the tracks on Heavy Flute live in the studio. There are no edits, overdubs, splices or any other manipulation of the original music. All of the tracks you hear are first takes. The incomparable bassist Naim Satya is on all tracks. His playing on the two trio pieces, Mah Jong and Old Folks in particular are illustrations of "how to play the bass". He always lays it down. Noted film composer Joe Delia plays piano on Souls Eyes and Israel. On the former, his una corda pedal work is absolutely unique among jazz pianists in creating a haunting guitar effect behind the flute. Drummers Paul Distel and Alan Levine always play with impeccable time, perfect musicality and a groove. Both are masters of the lost art of brush playing. Most importantly, they respond telepathically in any playing situation Robb Hunt may be contacted a rhunt@sonic.net.
