A week back, I think prompted by a comment on a forum about his C-Mel playing, I seem to have found what I suspect is the only current commercial C-Soprano player – have a listen to the “Shadow of Lo” clip on this Amazon page
He’s called Chip Shelton, certainly looks like C-Sop and C-Mel in the picture – makes sense, as he normally plays ‘C’ flute – check out the website – I’ve heard him playing flute before (great player) but I suspect that C-Melody and C-Soprano are a new’ish venture ?
I’m having problems contacting him to confirm details, but from the picture (click on it for a bigger one) it certainly looks like C-Mel and C-Sop, and the short Amazon sound samples seem to confirm it – maybe I’ll just have to buy the tracks… Anyone know anything ?
Interestingly, notice the angled flute head – he’s a ‘vertical’ flute player as well !
This does seem to confirm it, a review of the Imbued With Memories album.
