Notes & Reviews:

"I admire the courage of Jeanne Baxtresser for putting together a compilation CD of some of her favorite music. It is not a thinly veiled effort to repackage older recordings in the interest of greater profit; it is a sincere and loving offering to the world. Flutists and non-flutists alike will enjoy this remarkable playing and varied repertoire. There are some moments where I find her tone a bit overpowering, especially in the Bach, but this is a matter of taste. Her effortless technique still makes my head spin. The Gershwin arrangements are, for lack of better term, a bit cheesy, but still played with great passion. I suppose lists can be a good thing, after all. I enjoyed hearing Baxtresser's, and I am confident you will too." -ARG
