SOME INTERESTING LINKS

Sir James Galway
Sir James website contains information that includes his current touring and teaching schedule.  It formerly included me as his Resident Jazz Flute Specialist (as well as Matthias Ziegler as the Resident Extended Techniques Specialist and Nicola Manzzanti as the Resident Piccolo Specialist).  However, Sir James is currently focusing more on his own masterclass and mentoring activities.

Wm. S. Haynes Flute Company
I have been playing two vintage Haynes flutes (open hole, in-line G, low C foot) for about 30 years now.  I continue to be entirely satisfied with these  instruments.  In 2013, I became a Designated Haynes Artist (alongside HUBERT LAWS!)  Recently, I purchased a Classic Fusion O which is unquestionably a fantastic instrument.  It now serves as my main axe (...but I am going to keep the other two as well!...)

Guo Flutes
This company makes remarkable instruments.  I recently obtained a Tocco plastic flute and, I have to admit, it is not only fun to play; it is a fine quality device, on every dimension!  (...Oh, and by the way, it's red!...)  Also, I now have a sterling silver DYNALANCE headjoint which has become my headjoint of choice.  Informed ears, when "blindfolded", always pick this one out from any of the others I have...so it is not just me!...(Geoffrey Guo is one talented flute maker!)

Robert Bigio Stoppers & Crowns
If you ever find yourself unhappy with your headjoint, then I would strongly recommend that you give Robert Bigio's stoppers and crowns a try before you commit to a new one.  (Indeed, you might just want to give his stoppers and crowns a try...in any case!...)

Countryman Associates, Inc.
For live work, I use a Countryman ISOMAX 2 hard-wired clip-on condenser mic with a hypercardioid pattern.  It functions with (1) absolutely great fidelity, (2) absolutely no feedback and (3) absolutely no key noise.  I know of nothing better.  In fact, this is precisely what Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull has also been using for years (...so I can't be all wrong!...)

Jazz.FM91
Jazz.FM91 is Canada's premier 24/7 jazz radio station.  This station has been very good to many, many Canadian independent jazz artists over the years (including me) and, accordingly, I (like all of the others) really appreciate Jazz.FM91 because it is one of the best jazz stations...anywhere!...

Jazz with Bob Parlocha
Bob Parlocha's syndicated jazz radio show in the USA has also been very good to me over the years and with each of my acoustic jazz releases (Nature Boy, Paco Paco, Mercy and Find Your Place).  Of course, this has been of enormous importance to an obscure, Canadian, indie, jazz flutist who now gets to be heard on what is probably the hippest jazz program on the planet Earth!

Hilo Studio

My most recent two albums (including the award-winning album, Mercy) were recorded at Hilo Studio where Pacy Schulman did an outstanding job, handling all aspects of the sound including the engineering, mixing and mastering of the entire album. (Have a listen and see!)

Mike Filice Repairs

I entrust all of my hand-crafted instruments to Mike Filice who is well-known for his workmanship on all of the reeds but who is also a Straubinger-certified flute repairman.  He does excellent work!  He is located in North-West Toronto and he can be reached at home at (647) 349-1188 or by cell at (647) 241-1199. (...Oh, and he is a helluva tenor player!...)

Get Fuzzy
I know this link is a bit off-topic but I simply can't resist providing it... because I am such an enormous fan of Bucky the Katt!...
