Dave Valentin
Come Fly With Me

"Valentin plays the flute like you've never heard it before with flare and wild, scintillating, all consuming fire, typically not usually associated with the flute, but this is how the instrument should be played!! I've seen Valentin live and he's even better!!! Can you believe that??!!!!"   – AMAZON.com

The irrepressible Dave Valentin returns for his second HighNote recording. A student of jazz great Hubert Laws, Dave puts his unmistakable stamp on nine tunes that run the gamut from Latin jazz standards ("Tu Pañuelo"), jazz classics, ("If You Could See Me Now"), originals tunes by Dave and Bill O’Connell and, of course, the title track, which owes nothing to the great Sinatra-Billy May recording in terms of originality. With pianist Bill O’Connell and trombonist Papo Vazquez penning the charts, COME FLY WITH ME is a trip to the tropics with some of the greatest names in Latin jazz.

With Bill O’Connell, piano; Chris Barretto, tenor sax; Papo Vazquez, trombone; Luquez Curtis, bass; Robby Ameen, drums; Milton Cardona & Richie Flores, perc.

Tracks: Come Fly With Me; Twinkle Toes; Enciendido; Mind Games; If You Could See Me Now; Easy Street; Tu Pañuelo; House of the Sun; Song for My Brothers.
