A Flute and Nut Case


This is one of my favourite flute albums - and the alto playing isn't bad either! Harold McNair, sadly, died in 1971 when he was only 39 but if he'd only made this one record his place in jazz history would have been assured.
Originally released on RCA's budget International label without giving any personnel details on the sleeve, this has been a source of frustration to many of us including trumpet player and vocalist Dave Weisser who has only recently discovered the disc.
Dave wonders if anyone out there are able to supply details of the big band personnel that accompanies McNair.
Can anyone help? - Lance.

As a PS, when the late Charlie Carmichael bought his first flute from me at Windows, he also bought the aforementioned LP. I think the LP was as inspirational to him as anything by Herbie Mann or the other flute player (forgotten his name)
