5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Jazz Fans June 13, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
With all the recorded material available from Sam Most, it still astounds me that there are many jazz history books in which he is not even mentioned. Sam is indeed "the First Flutist of Bebop", as is evidenced by his latest release "Simply Flute". Still swingin' hard at age 70!!
If you dig this album and Sam's playing, do yourself a favor and check out some of his earlier works. Highly recommended are the "Herbie Mann-Sam Most Quintet" (1956) for some great bop and "Any Time Any Season" (1987) with painist Frank Collett and strings, which was produced by Fernando Gelbard, a fine flutist/pianist himself, who also produced "Simply Flute".

5.0 out of 5 stars SAM MOST "SIMPLY FLUTE" LINER NOTES June 12, 2008
By Sibemol
Format:MP3 Music
SIMPLY FLUTE

What you have in your hands is an invitation to enjoy the living legacy of one of the authentic innovators in jazz music. Born in 1930, Sam Most's professional career started in the late forties, when he played with the orchestras of Tommy Dorsey, Boyd Raeburn, and Don Redman, gaining experience for his first session as a leader, which would take place in 1953. By then, and although he was equally conversant with the tenor saxophone and the clarinet, he was also a brilliant flutist ¬- later on, the flute would be his main instrument.

Dubbed by legendary jazz critic Leonard Feather as "the father of jazz flute," Sam was, back in the 50s, one of the first musicians to introduce the flute as a prime jazz instrument, which until then only had, if any at all, a secondary place among wind instruments in jazz instrumentation. Although some early ragtime arrangements included parts for flute and piccolo, the flute, because of its low volume and "thin" sound, was not commonly used in jazz ensembles until the 1920s, and did not truly emerge as a solo instrument until the early 50s.

Already established as a multi-woodwind player, Sam worked largely in different settings from the 1950s onwards, releasing albums as a leader and along with jazz luminaries such as Paul Quinichette, Teddy Wilson, Red Norvo, Louis Bellson and Buddy Rich, to name only a few. Even though he came to be very popular within the jazz scene (a telling fact about this is that, by that time, jazz flute fans were divided into two "rival" factions, supporting either him or the other famous flutist of the time, Herbie Mann), later on Sam moved to LA and mainly worked as a studio musician rarely recording under his own name.
