Our middle school has a jazz band. They practice in the mornings, and every Thursday after school. I've been listening to them play, and I love it! The peices sound like a ton of fun.
Right now its only some saxophones, a couple trumpets, a drum set, and a trombone. There has never been a flute in the jazz band. Is it because flutes are not interested, or just because they don't "fit"? Only the older grades are allowed to join, but I'm hoping when I get older I might be able to.
My question is - can flutes be in a jazz band? I guess they could.. but? I'll have to ask my band teacher tomorrow. I've heard some flutes play in a jazz band before, could anyone direct me toward a couple of jazz flute audio clips?
