Aside from Roland Rashaan Kirke (who played more sax than flute), the obvious two would be Herbie Mann (probably the grandfather of flauters as he started in the mid-50's), and Jeremy Steig, a somewhat much more experimentative flauter, whose album Something Else is absolutely essential as he started in mid-to-late 60's.  
 
Are there any others???Smile
 
Ian Anderson did play a fantastic version of Rashaan's  Serenade To A Cuckoo on Tull's debut album Time Was, but that doesn't really count , does it??? Wink

Well, you can add to the list Jean Pierre rampal who played Claude Bolling's 'Suite For Flute And Jazz Piano'
I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

I listen to the performance of Joe Farrell that often competes with Chick Corea. It is felt that it has acted well for the music character of Chick Corea. Or, a melody unique Eric Dolphy will be performed.

 I thought Rampall was a classical flutist

Oooohhh!!!.. How could I forget Farrell???... Embarrassed
 
Love what he did in RTF (except for their last studio album), and some of his solo albums are superb.

Dave Liebman is the only one I can think of beside the other more famous ones.

Oh! And James Spaulding!

And not entirely jazz, but say jazz-related in the least, Jimmy Hastings.

They were the flautists on The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady; not sure what other albums they have played on.

I think the topic of jazz flute came up over at PA recently, and I mentioned Herbie Mann, and it became a bashing thread, so I dont know if I should mention him here... Eh, f**k it

this is my favorite album by him


and then someone posted this album cover, and then the bashing started


Shocked

Seriously, it's good stuff Wink

Yup, my two faves from herbie, but I still have to re-investigate london Underground.
 
I simply don't get the guys that are so insecure because of male nudity... I know some that are denying the status of Yes' Going For The One and Rush's Hemispheres

I deny the status of Going for the One and Hemishperes, but the nudity has nothing to do with it.LOL

And, seriously, do you find that Herbie Mann cover appealing? I mean, what's the need haha. However, if the music's good, then no problem.

Although his releases are severely lacking in male nudity, Eric Dolphy plays a mean flute, one of my favorites on the instrument.

I'll be sure to revisit Henry THREADGILL'S VERY VERY CIRCUS (it appears to be his most successful period)
I had done so a few years ago, but I guess it flew by my grasp or comprehension, thanks

Well Llod, Dolphy and Lateef  are better known as sax players, but they do deserve a mention in this thread

Of course they are, and deservedly so.  Although Lloyd does play the flute very often.

As for the flute players, I recommend Malik Mezzadri.

Hubert Laws, who played a lot of flute on Gil scott-Heron albums, before Brian Jackson did take over, is another superb flauter
