Some of Buddy's finest flute work can be found on "Music to Listen to Red Norvo By." He's heard in a very congenial sextet setting, playing several lovely compositions written especially for this group by Jack Montrose, Norvo, etc. A very distinctive and wonderful album.


Great live clip of Buddy playing flute and sax with his quartet on an original composition:
