16 Entries already! The division looks great.ReplyDelete
Yep, you had a good idea with this 3P division! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Updated with the new entries, and added a picture and a link for each entry.ReplyDelete
I unilaterally decided to integrate Fred Gretsch Jr., who bought the brand Humanatone from the Stivers, and the patent patent from Davis, in order to launch the nose flute biggest sales success: the plastic Humanatone!
I think it's a great thing to have this Hall of Fame so easily accessible as a banner. I love the overview with the "avatar" pictures, the accompanying one-liners and the links to their posts!ReplyDelete
Beautiful work and presented with almost german accuracy - congratulations for this great addition to the Hall of Fame!ReplyDelete
You left out Rahsaan Roland Kirk!ReplyDelete
Well the reason is simple : Roland Kirk used to play regular flutes with his nose, and no nose flute (as far as I know). By "nose flute", here, we deal with instruments which tonality is modified by changing the size of the buccal cavity, not by the use of fingers clogging holes. Let's call "urban nose flute" that instrument.
All the best,
thanks for your comment
Have you checked out Will Grove-white from the ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain? http://youtu.be/lgeZuLkqPpw?list=UUoRYjxbNRhlG2g5lqAmMs4gReplyDelete
Will is a friend of mine! And I have published on this bloag all of his videos (3) with nose flute (just type his name in the "search" field of this blog). Anyway, excepted for Leonard Cohen (which was a mistake from me), you'll notice that all the member of the NFHoF have been nominated ...post mortem. And fortunately, my friend Will is very alive!
All the best,
Look, I even made an electronic nose flute for will : http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-tIMZrGCbzqM/Tw86uM3oAnI/AAAAAAAAKEA/NDfiQGuAZCU/s1600/%2BWGW-.jpgDelete
