"NY Jazz Flutet"

The NY JAZZ FLUTET is a unique, in-demand, cooperative group of flutists who have defined a new sound. Individually leaders of their own ensembles, the FLUTET has embraced Jazz, Latin, World Beat, and Classical Musics as versatile entities.

Described as highly professional and elegant, this core group of 4 multi-flutists plus percussionist (who also occasionally plays flute) provides a lush, musical mixture that is well suited for upscale venues and events.

The repertoire includes Jazz greats such as Clifford Brown, Dizzy Gillespie, and Duke Ellington as well as originals by the members.

"World Flute Choir (WFC), 1993-4"

Chip Shelton's WFC was likely the first Flute Orchestra in the Jazz World. It was the precursor to today's NY Jazz Flutet; and, the soon-to-be- dubuted, NY Jazz Flutet XXL

Bio

The JAZZ FLUTE PARTY BAND spreads energetic fun wherever it appears. The sonic palate includes an infectious 'move-your-body' rhythm section; melodious flutes ranging from the tiny piccolo to the massive sub-contrabass flute; interspersed with tasty lyrics by male and female vocalist-members.  

Jazz, Latin, World Beat, and Classical Musics are all embraced as versatile entities for the concert or party. Highly professional and elegant, the (contractible or expandable) ensemble provides an energetic and lush musical mixture that is well suited for upscale venues and events, whether small, medium, or large. 

Beside featuring almost the entire flute family, from Piccolo to Contrabass Flute, members sing and/or provide piano accompaniment on select arrangements. On special occasion, the ensemble will expand (The NY JAZZ FLUTET XXL) to include up to 8 additional flutists;  5 piece rhythm section (piano, bass, guitar, percussion, drums); a female & a male vocalist. 

The NY Jazz Flutet repertoire includes jazz composers such as Clifford Brown, Horace Silver, and Duke Ellington; classical composers such as Bach, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky; and originals by ensemble members. 

“Everyone so enjoyed your unusual combination of flutes. What a curious treat!!!
