Review: fabulous trio of three versatile flautists that take the flute into realms it hasn’t visited before. No accompanying instruments. Three pieces with several movements each, and each one is captivating.

*2/ Mvt 2 (2:56) – high register uptempo opening> uptrmpo jam in different registers> quick stop
*3/ Mvt 3 (3:58) – fast jam opens & pauses> swings & pauses over & over like snow flurries, then slows to midtempo & fades
4/ Mvt 4 (2:10) – long slow drawn out notes open> slow tempo jam like haunting spirits> fade
*5/ Mvt 5 (6:13) – undulating notes like fairies dancing> midtempo jam with flutes intersecting> slow fade
6/ Mvt 6 (4:31) – slow low register flute opens> slow jam like the soundtrack for a sunset> slow fade
Bade Saba
*7/ Mvt 1 (4:08) – undulating uptempo jam opens, like water flowing down a creek, splashing, running over logs & stones, then going over a waterfall & flowing on> quick stop
8/ Mvt 2 (8:02) – stately midtempo opening like a royal procession, then swings uptempo like a bicycle race, then mellows back to the procession, then swings back to the race & fades
*9/ Mvt 3 (3:04) – steady notes like water dripping morphs into midtempo jam, then swings uptempo like rain, which increases in speed and fades away

*12/ Mvt 3 (4:00) – hesitant opening> uptempo jam like a flight of hummingbirds> quick stop
