Dear Marc,
Glad to see you're keeping up the soft spot for jazz flute (as with your referencing Jeremy Steig recently: another one to make an album with Bill Evans, who, quite simply, obviously dug flute!).
And, a point of information: today is George Shearing's 90th birthday.
Best,
RED.

As for Oliver Nelson's music, Mosaic's 6 CD box of his Verve/Impulse big band sessions is highly recommended. ("The Kennedy Dream" is included.)

Hey Marc,

Cool idea! I'll have to check your previous Vols as well.

But how about some active players? There's so much good stuff out there by folks on the scene today, ie.:

The Teaching, "The Teaching" http://theteachingmusic.com
Farnell Newton, "Sense of Direction" http://www.fnmusicweb.com/
Industrial Jazz Group, "Leef" http://industrialjazzgroup.com/listen/
Chad McCulloch, "Dark Wood, Dark Water" http://www.chadmccullough.com/
And my personal fav, Jason Parker Quartet, "No More, No Less" http://onworkingmusician.com (sorry, had to do it! ;))

I'd love to hear your favs from currently jazzers.
