005 FFF Homage to Dave Valentin

Hello flute lovees, today I made a video of Obsesion in homage to the late, fabulous, jazz flutist, Dave Valentin. This song was one that became one of his signature pieces. The earliest I saw him perform this piece (on youtube – I wish I could have seen hi. live!) was with the Tito Puente band at a club in NY.

You can read more and see several of his amazing videos in this article by All About Jazz

When I was younger I had the dream to travel to New York, find him, and study with him. That was not to be, my life took me all sorts of other places, but not to New York and not to Dave Valentin.
