Was clicking on various links this morning and found out that Bud Shank, saxaphonist and flautist had passed away in April of this year.

When I was learning how to play flute, a most wonderous record came to be (actually it came out in 1963, so it was much earlier). I don't know whether Mom bought it because she liked, or because I liked it or because it was Japanese music and flute. Koto and Flute by Kimio Eto and Bud Shank is one of my favorite albums (which I need to somehow transfer from lp to cd).

I've got some of the same songs as performed by Jean Pierre Rampal and James Galway, but my favorite version is still the one by Kimio Eto and Bud Shank =)
