but his solos are usually so good, it doesn't matter to me.
And I'm NOT saying it's true about either of them, just that I heard that it was...
As you probably know, Laws was a Juilliard student, studied with Julius Baker and subbed in the NY Philharmonic and Met Opera orchestras. So he had formal classical training to say the least, and his albums, at least the ones I know well, are sophisticated, complex, and highly produced, and therefore I suspect have little pure improvisation.
But he's a jazzer first and can improvise with anyone.
Yes, he's a fantastic player.
A friend who was also a Baker Student said "Julie" used to show him off at Flute-Parties at Bakers home.
And there are PLENTY of fine Flutists that studied with him!
I only have "Little Sunflower" w/Milt Jackson these days, Hubert's solos are great and complex,
it's fun to hear something so close to the edge of what one can actually DO with a Flute.
And he tongues like a Mother!
