Pat Metheney - James: Arrangement for Flute Quartett

Hi everybody,

Mozart wrote: What is worse than a flute? Two flutes! Now Wolfgang Amadeus, take this, my arrangement of Pat Metheneys "James" for flute quartet with to concert, alto and bassflute (and a triangle for thhe groove). I wrote this for my sax quartet and transcribed it now for flutes. Perhaps I'll add later a bassclarinet or so, because there is really no proper bass. But I kind of like the pure flute sound.
For me - James is the perfect song, you can't write a nicer melody over these beautiful chord progression. Pats and Lyles soloing on the studio album is top notch, too and I quotetheir lines in my solos here and there, because I listened so much to it.

If anyone is interested in the charts (for sax quartet)drop me a line.

I hope you enjoy it....

Thank you so much, it means a lot to me, that you like it.
I recall Nana Vasconcelos being the triangle player on the original recprding.
Dirk, it's absolute pleasure to listen. I do it without any concentration. Doing some "mechanical" mouse moves job on comp and listening. The music just presents... Thanks.
Very kind, Michael!
