From the Soundboard - Dave Valentin
@ WBAI 99.5 FM, Wednesday Jun 28 2017

On Wednesday, June 21, starting @ 3 am, we will pay tribute to the Grammy Award winning Jazz flutist nickname The Pied Piper of the Bronx.  He is Dave Valentin


Switching to flute exclusively, and dissuaded from exploring the sax by Hubert Laws, his flute instructor for a short time, Dave Valentin developed a style born of his percussive instincts, incorporating syncopation, forceful staccato bursts to create drum-like effects and a number of growling vocalizations generating sharp overtones—on top of a mellow and classic flute sound.
