HUBERT LAWS, MORNING STAR (CTI)


After early dates for the Atlantic label, listeners couldn’t get enough of the jazz flute of Hubert Laws, whose fame exploded once he joined CTI. “Morning Star” (1972) is as hip and memorable as anything he did, from the lush Don Sebesky arrangement to a funky cover of “Where Is The Love.” His rendition of “Amazing Grace” was always a crowd pleaser in concert but this 2011 NEA Jazz Master honoree and 2010 Downbeat Flutist of the Year winner played it here first. (6 tracks; 35:52 minutes)
