One of my favorites is Canada-based Guido Basso. I have an out of
print copy of a beautiful recording he did with bassist Andy
Simpkins, Frank Collett on piano and I believe, Terry Clarke on
I think he has a few other recordings under the JustinTime label?
Yes -- though he's not well recorded as a leader. Basso was a premier
soloist in Rob McConnell's Boss Brass and is well documented in solo
roles with that big band.
Miles album "Miles Ahead" did it. Before that flugel was around but
not widely used; after that, it became an essential double for
trumpeters (as did soprano after Coltrane's "My Favorite Things"
notwithstanding Bechet, Lacy and Lucky Thompson's soprano playing).
