Where beauty and swing meet!
“Diversity – thy name is Hubert Laws” as he moves freely between mainstream jazz, funk and the concert music of Stravinsky. Laws’ effectiveness with such a wide range of styles harkens to his gorgeous sound, with its centered, overtone-rich qualities, the inherent rhythmic drive in his melodic lines and an imaginative harmonic vision.
The result is a virtual seminar in the interpretive potential of the flute. When Mr. Laws plays the daredevil, harmonically intricate material that establishes him as the leading jazz flautist of his generation... watch out ! !
