Drawing on interviews with leading flutists and other major jazz artists, musicologist and jazz flutist Peter Westbrook examines the history of the flute, both in and out of jazz, and looks at the artists, the techniques, and the styles that make jazz flute a rich part of contemporary world music. The book is complimented by a documentary film, and supported by a website www.fluteinjazz.com, that includes further interviews, an extensive discography, plus news, reviews and links to flutists and other artists throughout the world.
