Album Review

After nine years with the eclectic David Grisman Quintet, flutist Matt Eakle was given the opportunity to step out with his first solo album, and he makes the most of it with Flute Jazz. Employing a drummerless trio format, Eakle mixes his own original compositions with standards and tasteful jazz covers to produce an excellent showcase for his fine flutin'. His classically influenced tone is warm and airy, his original melodies are fresh yet familiar, and his improvisations are creative, incorporating inventive melodic twists and trilling, slurring, flutter-tongued effects.

Eakle's musical partners are superb as well. Acoustic guitarist Davis Ramey provides sympathetic chordal accompaniment and well-conceived solos, while bassist Harvie Swartz nimbly slips, slaps and slides across his doghouse's full range. The recording itself is beautiful, giving the instruments a naturally dry, reverbless sound, as though the three players were actually in the room with the listener. This is totally acoustic music of the highest quality, recommended without reservation.

Best Jazz Flute Album I Have Purchased On Itunes So Far

I was sitting in my house this morning, buying a bunch of music from Itunes, trying to get up to 3,000 songs on my ipod. I was also listening to jazz on my computer and I realized I didn't have any jazz flute. Not knowing any famous jazz flute artists, I typed "jazz flute" in the search box and it came up with this album. So I bought it, waited for it to download, dragged it into my ipod, and turned up the speakers. What I heard was not what I had expected (what I had expected was an average album with different instrumentation). I didn't want to listen to anything else after hearing this so I turned of my computer. The moral of this story is that if a really good jazz flute album is what you're looking for, buy this, you will not be disappointed.
