The Best of Free Flight, Volume 1

Flute and Piano - Advanced
Composed by Mike Garson. Edited by Jim Walker. Jim Walker Flute Series. Score and Parts. 50 pages. Published by Mike Garson Publishing (M5.F-FL0006).

Item Number: M5.F-FL0006

In 1997 Downbeat Magazine wrote "Who says classical Music can't be as spontaneous as jazz or as catchy and rhythmic as rock & roll? Certainly not genre-bending virtuosos flutist Jim Walker and pianist Mike Garson."
Their creative collaboration established Free Flight as a group that, as All Music Guide observes: "successfully fused together classical passages, straight-ahead jazz, and fusion, sometimes switching between all three idioms in the same chorus."

Hailed for their virtuosity and musical interplay, "…a frenzied excursion through the past few hundred years of music history. With dazzling stylistic shifts from bebop to classical to funk…" (Jonathan Widran, Rovi)

"Walker's long and complex unison choruses with Garson are a highlight…neither virtuoso seems to ever make a mistake" (Scott Yanow, All Music Guide),

Free Flight has left behind a rich recorded legacy. Containing four of the group's most requested songs, this volume is a valuable resource for improvising flutists or for duet performance. Vol. 1 features:
--Unabridged, faithfully transcribed from the actual recordings
--All solos, including piano and bass, transcribed for flute
--Chord changes
--Extended (8 1/2 minute) version of "Plain & Simple.".
