The concept behind Forbidden Flute is to present the flutes in a variety of musical settings: solo, duo, trio, trio plus percussion and quartet. Many modern flute techniques are used to create melodic and harmonic effects. All the sounds that are heard on these performances are produced naturally - no electronic effects have been added.
I was very fortunate to be accompanied on this cd by outstanding musicians who are among the very best on the European jazz scene.
