and now, the flute

Nina Perlove, playing a composition by Jacques Ibert.

A 1957 clip of Jean Pierre Rampal playing Debussy’s Syrinx.

Eric Dolphy, on flute, with the John Coltrane quartet, on My Favorite Things. Go to 4:08 for the flute solo. But you should really listen to the whole thing.

Chicago powerhouse jazz composer and performer Nicole Mitchell on a solo composition. I’ve seen her play multiple times and she’s utterly amazing. She’s playing in trio format here, with Hamid Drake and Harrison Bankhead.
