Jazz flute hardcore

Matthew Watters
The list author says: "To counteract the rather lightweight image of jazz flute, here's five great albums of serious jazz featuring the instrument. These recordings are the real deal."
Phenil Isopropil Amine

"French flautist and tenor sax player Jaspar goes all-flute on this swinging outing."

"Multi-instrumentalist Kirk makes one of his greatest artistic statements with this atmospheric all-flute recording."

"Equally skilled on alto sax, James Spaulding's fabulous Monk tribute album really comes alive on the tracks where Spaulding solos on the flute. Spaulding's swinging, non-sentimental approach to the instrument is as perfectly suited to Monk as Steve Lacy's soprano sax."
Flute Souffle

"Bobby Jaspar and Herbie Mann trade between flute and sax on these finely textured pianoless recordings featuring guitar as a rhythm instrument."

"Richardson's thoughtful approach made him one of the music's greatest flute players, and this fine album is a rare chance for him to shine as a leader."
