With the recent remastered reissues of selected CTI records from early 70's , I bought Huberts' "The Rite Of Spring" an ambitious not-really-jazz album of well known european Classical pieces.....it was a joy to hear a 'clean' recording and made me think of where he was at nowadays.Good to know he's still around and performing.I'd love to be there -- tell us how the concert goes.
His flute was on everything of quality,it seemed,back in the early 70's....his playing on Aretha's "Daydreaming" made the track stand out.

I enjoyed Hubert's CTI output...but his "Say It With Silence" on CBS (when they did jazz...LOL) is just KILLER !! I have transferred that album to CD and "crank it up" on the regular !!

Say, did CTI/Kudu FINALLY reissue Idris Muhammed's "Power Of Soul" lp?? All I have is a terrific 7" of his big-band version...

Despite your post the other day stating your distaste for my boys "The Dan" - in the spirit of true cameraderie on SoulfulDetroit - I will confirm for you that the Idris album you desire on cd is,indeed,available as part of last(and this) years programme of remastered reissues of 'classic CTi' albums.
Go to Sony/Legacy on the Web - then follow your nose to Legacy and their Artist List.....you'll find the cover shown (original artwork - which is always a pleasure,I think) and means to buy etc.
Erik / I was going to respond sarcastically to yr post mentioning The Dan in the same sentence as Rush -- Ye Gods !!! I'm truly sorry u get no kick from The Dan.....comparing their latterday sound to,say,this Idris album - of course,I can see they sound somewhat sanitised and hi-tech....but there's much to glory in their smartass schtick,IMO -- alongside their genuine acknowledgment and debt owed to Black American musicians...many contemporaries employed to glorious effect on their post-Countdown To Ecstasy albums.
Anyway,am sure these words will not change yr view....they do,indeed,alienate as much as attract listeners it seems.
I'm a fool to do their dirty work.

You're a fellow Glaswegian.
Our connection ends thereafter because you continually find certain postings offensive.
Ain't no use pal.
Erik has been highly respected on this forum for a long time.

David/ You're mistaken in your criticism in this instance.
I've failed to communicate a sense of humour regarding Eriks' post the other day.I'm very aware of the fact that SD(the Band) do,indeed,engender the type of dislike that Erik posted.STUBASS almost got that far in earlier exchanges - and we lightheartedly dealt with that.
I genuinely apologise if I appear unduly argumentative.
I used paraphrases from 'I get a kick out of you' and my last sentence is a line from a Dantrack called 'Dirty Work' - intended to convey a lightness of tone that you (and perhaps others have missed). I love the Idris Muhammed album and am delighted to confirm to Erik the detail of its' reissue.
I repeat that if I come off aggressively or confrontationally - I unreservedly apologise.
This Forum has been a pleasure to contribute to and I regret you feel the way you do.

Thanks for understanding Des.
