Robert Dick & The Soldier String Quartet

Flutist Robert Dick decided to do a CD with several of the spacier jazz standards, and with the Soldier String Quartet, he succeeds in bringing life to John Coltrane's "India" and Jimi Hendrix's "Machine Gun," among others. His highly expressive playing harks back to Eric Dolphy, and though this disc might not be a good choice for purists, the playing is highly enjoyable.
