Tooting In Tucson

Hola Tucson!!!

I am very impressed with the great energy I am feeling from y’all down there. I feel welcome already. I am seriously leaning towards making it my new home… at least for a while. Casting fate to the wind as it were. The only thing I know for sure is that my exit from “Little Siberia” is coming soon. Hopefully mid March or soon thereafter.

My heartfelt thanks to all of you who have been reaching out to me. It means a lot, and warms my spirit.  The challenges these days for musicians are many. CDs hardly sell anymore, record companies are boarded up, the economy is in bad shape, and blah, blah, blah. A musician’s greatest hope seems to be a you tube video that goes “viral”.  Crazy!!!

Flute is a very healing instrument. I need healing, the planet needs healing. I am simply seeking to develop symbiotic relationships with great people who may be, shall we say, instrumental, in getting the show on the road.  It takes a village to raise a band.

To the fine folks of Tucson… are you my future village?

Perhaps only the shadow knows…

Comfortably Numb Is Done!!!

I am very pleased with the outcome of my recording of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb”.

This is my biggest production ever for a single tune, featuring flute, violin, viola, cello, keyboards, bass, & drums. Many thanks to my personal George Martin… Mike Kapitan. He is a master producer, arranger, keyboardist, and studio engineer. I told him this was to be an all out production, sparing no expense. He went to it, and the result is I feel the best single track I have ever produced.

For a limited time, I will send the mp3 to you for free, if you provide me with an email address. I want as many people as possible to hear this. Many more tunes are in the works. I think you will enjoy this piece… a classic masterpiece by Pink Floyd.  Please email your request to dave@davehinzflute.com  Put “Numb” in the subject line.
