Art Farmer: Flugelhorn and Flumpet (and a site redesign!)

Art Farmer has such musical ideas. When you hear him, there’s no confusion as to who’s playing. Too bad more peeps don’t know about him. Check out this beautiful waltz. I can’t quite place the title–tip of my tongue. Anybody?

Farmer was a superb player, especially on the flugel, and in fact, a new kind of horn was invented for him, the Flumpet. Here he is playing the one Dave Monette developed for him (Art Farmer’s solo starts at 6:51)

As for the site makeover, it should be obvious. Hope you like it. Shoot me some feedback in the comments if you spot trouble, or if you like it. 🙂
