"When the young men serenaded only the flute was forbidden.
Why, I asked. Because it was bad for the girls to hear the flute at night."
Ernest Hemmingway on the customs of the Italian Abruzzi in 'A Farewell to Arms'.

The concept behind Forbidden Flute is to present
the flutes in a variety of musical settings: solo, duo, trio, trio plus percussion
and quartet. Many modern flute techniques are used to create melodic and harmonic
effects. All the sounds that are heard on these performances are produced
naturally - no electronic effects have been added.
I was very fortunate to be accompanied on this cd by outstanding musicians who are among the very best on the European jazz scene.
