Clarke: Deep Blue Digital Album Bundle
Ian Clarke’s album Within…
“Ian Clarke’s new CD transcends the work of most other flautists from a Classical Music background. Constantly inventive and cutting edge in terms of rhythm, melody and “alternative” flute-playing techniques, he brings great traditional skills to bear too, with perfect intonation and technical bravado. An eclectic delight! Luckily for me, he doesn’t sing or play acoustic guitar as well….” – Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull
