bito On February - 17 - 2011

To those new here we have been doing different classifications of musical instruments.  It always ends up a very eclectic mixture of music.  Add to the mix and enjoy.

I love the sound of flutes and at one time I was quite the accomplished player.  I could play “Twinkle, Twinkle” on both the flute and the recorder.

Evening Song – Ronald Roybal – Native American Flute Music

Emmanuel Pahud plays Bach~Sonata in E flat

The “sexiest” instrument?  The Saxaphone.

Alto and Tenor Saxophone Duet

The Clarinet

Budapest Klezmer Band

Favorite Woodwind? Favorite player or song?  Fill in our flute and reed section.

    One of a kind… Rahsaan Roland Kirk

  12. I am sure there will screams of outrage.

    Seriously, I like the panpipes, despite Carson’s critiques of the hype. From what I can see and surmise on my own, it takes a lot of skill to play those well.

    I also like the oboe, as well as the non-traditional (or non-Western) woodwinds -- they send chills up and down my spine.

    Kitaro used quite a few of those instruments in his compositions, and I never heard a Kitaro composition that I didn’t love.

    I love the flute -- Yusef Lateef

  15. Khirad says:

    This is called an algoza, it is a double flute from Punjab and Sindh and if you get past the guy talking it’s kinda worth it.


  16. Khirad says:

    This kinda thing is way better live, but I’ve seen this guy at the Tucson American Indian Heritage Cultural Fair:

    Don’t know if anyone has posted this yet, but it is music I find very easy to listen to from the Andes.

    Evening you all, this is Freddy V…I have known Freddy all my life, he was the brother I never had. He lived accross the street from me growing up, I used to sit outside his window, listening to him practice, waiting for him to come out and play…back then he wasn’t that good. He found me via Facebook a couple of months ago…he was one of the few who I was glad found me after all these years.

    His smile is still the same…

    Ok, this is cheating, but just because it’s great live, and I’d be quite “winded” after doing this. 😉

      Kalima, I love the flute. I had a dear friend that would play her flute overlooking a stream in the ravine that was on our farm and the sound would echo throughout the area. It was near impossible to do any work done, you had to stop, listen and enjoy. Quite beautiful.

      • Kalima says:

        He is an acquaintance, a client actually. I love the flute, I played as a kid, but it became difficult after I started smoking. The echos produced by open spaces and mountains are unforgettable bito, makes me wish that we lived in the country, we both love forests and mountains.

    • Khirad says:

      How many flutes does he have up his kimono sleeve? 😆

      And these things aren’t hashi!

      I thought my corps drumming sticks were telephone poles!

      Of course, the Japanese had to turn drumming into an endurance sport!

      • Kalima says:

        Gosh I don’t know how many, but those hakata/kimono sleeves could hide the kitchen sink. I tried to find the group we often saw Live, Onden Koza, but youtube didn’t have them. The live stage drumming leaves you with your throat and ears bouncing, I could still hear the drums beat when I tried to go to sleep

  24. Khirad says:

    Some reed flute (how’s that for flutes and reeds?!)

    Persian style.

    Mohammad Mousavi (with a Rumi poem in Persian)

    Some jazzed-up Bach from Jethro Tull : Boureé
